Fire... them... all...

There's just no pleasing these guys... first they hold up "tough on crime" legislation... now they're crappin' on consumer protection...

The bill passed the House of Commons unanimously in June when the three opposition parties got behind the bill, drafted to replace 40-year old legislation universally identified as outdated.
