Into the lions’ den

Strange feeling, walking into the lobby to support an Iain Duncan Smith amendment. It propsed reinstating the need for babies conceived through IVF to have a father. Huw Irranca Davis indicated he was going to vote the same way. “Stay close,” I whispered out of the side of my mouth. Inside the ‘Aye’ lobby there were hordes of Tory MPs and a few other Labour MPs. I told Davy Hamilton, the Midlothian MP, that Huw was there to hold my hand. “Well, you’re in the wrong lobby then,” he observed.
