The controversial Public Order Bill has been passed at Westminster by 276 votes to 231.

The bill would introduce new laws governing protests, as well as the powers police have to stop and search people.

It received the backing of 276 MPs, 275 Conservative and one independent Rob Roberts.

The no votes included 39 from the SNP, 163 from Labour, seven independents including Jeremy Corbyn and Margaret Ferrier and Alba Party MP Kenny McAskill.

A total of 75 Tories abstained, with no vote recorded for 31 Labour, five SNP including Ian Blackford, and Alba’s other MP Neale Hanvey.

Even this Tory is appalled:

The Government says it’s to stop protests such as those by Extinction Rebellion that are disruptive.

It is not as though saving the planet is important or anything especially when we now know who is pulling the strings of this government. The Institute of Economic Affairs is a climate change denier.

Those who were complicit in it becoming law:
