Labour gets it right!

The Scottish Nationalists are claiming to be more productive than their Westminster rivals:
A POLITICAL row broke out yesterday when the SNP claimed to be the hardest-working party at Westminster in light of new figures showing they had made the most speeches in House of Commons’ debates.
A Labour spokesman responded:
The idea that you can measure how hard-working an MP is by the number of times they get on their feet in the House of Commons is wrong.
In government we need quality not quantity. Most new legislation is harmful and unnecessary. An MP who made a brief speech that resulted in the abolition of a useless law would be more productive than almost any of his colleagues.
