Current Business

While Westminster is dominated by reform of the House of Lords, and the not unconnected issue of the Cash for Honours affair, Congress continues to grapple with the issue of Iraq. Scandal also is a talking point on the western side of the Atlantic.

Background to the debate on Iraq in the House of Representatives can be found on the website of Sonny Hoyer, Majority Whip. http://www.majorityleader.gov/

The conviction of "Scooter" Libby makes this weeks' editions of Time and the Economist. An amusing take on this events events in the Cash for Questions affair can be heard at the start of the "Now Show" - why not take a listen on http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/mainframe.shtml?http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/comedy_promo.shtml?link

The House of Lords begin their debate on reform on Monday. Watch it live via this site. I'm hoping to sit in on at least some of the debate
