I'm guessing the title for this piece may get queried so wanted to say, pre-emptively, that from a British perspective and historically speaking this is something of a humiliation - such things have generally signalled the beginning of the end of premierships in the past. :0)--Rcameronw 21:10, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
I'm questioning the title -- it's one thing to explain in the piece itself that such defeats have, in the past, signalled the end of a premiership, but it's quite another to call it a "humilating defeat" in the title. It needs to be changed. "Blair loses terror legislation vote" would be a lot more appropriate. Motor 02:28, 10 November 2005 (UTC)
I'm not going to dispute the title - but there are oddities and busted wiki links in the version I've just retagged as develop. I'm going to read the source and look for others because this is an important story, but what was on the front page was a mess. Brianmc 22:12, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
I think the article looks good now, I am going to republish it. - Apollyon 23:31, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

what was it previously? 14 days?[edit]

90 days was rejected, 28 days was accepted. What was the status before the vote? I think I read somewhere that it was 14 days, can someone confirm? And it would be worth adding to the article that this was an increase from 14 to 28, not from zero to 28. Bill3 09:56, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Either someone just added it, or I'm blind. The info (14 days) is there now. Bill3 09:59, 10 November 2005 (UTC)
