    Hunt ban forced through Commons

    Commons Speaker Michael Martin has invoked the Parliament Act meaning a ban on fox hunting will be in place by February 2005.
    He told MPs the Act was being used for only the fourth time since 1949 - a move sparked by peers who earlier rejected a ban on hunting with dogs.

    So basically if a member of Parliment doesn't get his way on something he can enact the "I'm taking my ball and going home" rule and just pass whatever the hell law he wants??? Does this sound rediculous to anyone else but me?
