Whatever happens now with the legal proceedings against 3 Labour MP's and a Tory peer, I sincerely hope that Parliamentary privilege is not allowed as a defence. This was enacted in 1689 to allow MP's to say what they wish in the 2 houses without fear of being sued. It is to help get at the truth when the powerful could use their wealth and status to stop dissent and scrutiny. It is not for evading criminal proceedings when a crime is suspected. I hope sense prevails one way or another.
