Interesting analysis that fits nicely a recent comment in the House of Lords about the Police and Justice Bill: "I am told by the Library that this is the 52nd Home Office Bill since the Government came to power in 1997."

P.S. Talking of "one Bill", sorry you couldn't make it to the PuntCon this year!
