... for the first time in 100 years
Phil Woolas ejected from parliament over election slurs | UK news | The GuardianThe former immigration minister Phil Woolas was ejected from parliament today after two high court judges ruled that he lied about his Liberal Democrat opponent during the general election, in a judgment that is likely to have profound implications for all future campaigns.
Woolas claimed the ruling – which also triggered a byelection and barred him from standing again for three years – would "chill political speech", but the Lib Dem who challenged his 103 majority welcomed the decision, saying lying should play no part in democratic elections.
Talk about bitch slapped by the Judges
The Judges have also demanded a by election. This will be highly interesting to watch considering the unpopularity of Lib Dems who came second in the last election
