If proof were need that the government are indeed as slippery with extending their powers as I have suggested, take a look at the sudden postponement of local elections. These were postponed not just for a few days as in 2014, but for an entire year without any explanation.
The article also points out how awkward this makes life for an existing Assembly member but new MP such as Flo Eshalomi MP (and GLAM come to that).
A less distracted opposition would be on top of this. Marina Hyde makes it seem easy.
