The Second Reading...

...of Douglas Carswell's private member's bill is happening right now. It appears to be subjected to fillibusting by Tory whip Brooks Newmark, who spoke for an hour before on Sustainable Communities as not to give enough time to the referendum bill.

Douglas' twitters:
My EU Membership (Referendum) Bill. Seems it's been deliberately "talked out"?
Same old Tories, Europhiles to the end.

Update: Kerry McCarthy twitters:
Think Carswell just had go at Newmark outside. Newmark retorted "I cut it in half!" Carswell not happy, won't get to his Bill.
