Corporate BPI lobbyists: No need for democracy, just pass the Bill

Yet again, the BPI are calling to remove democratic safeguards.

This afternoon, Richard Mollet, Director of Public Affairs for the BPI, told the Counter 2010 conference in Manchester this afternoon that the Lords had scrutinised the Digital Economy Bill enough, and there is no further need for debate.

The BPI are saying there is no need for democratic debate by our elected MPs in the Commons. Richard Mollet, who is a Labour candidate for parliament, wants MPs to throw away their democratic rights and duties. This is corporate lobbying of the worst sort.

Hundreds of protesters will be opposing the ramming through of the Bill from 5.30pm this evening outside Parliament. Hope to see you there!
