Digital Economy Bill: Everyone is elsewhere

The constant mantra, both in the Commons and when Labour justify trying to rush the DEBill through in the closing hours of business of this parliament, is that it is important.

That it is vital. That it matters.

And yet how many MPs have put on hold their trips back to their constituencies for this important bill?

Bugger all. There's - what? - about a dozen, top whack, in the chamber.

If it's so important, where are the debaters?
