Boris Johnson MP: "Never mind Spiderman. Forget Harry Potter and his struggle against Voldemort. I'll tell you my hero of the hour. He's a 68-year-old Liberal Democrat peer called Lord Phillips of Sudbury in the County of Suffolk, and last week he struck such a blow for freedom and common sense that, if there were any justice, the people of Sudbury would now be organising a subscription to erect his statue in the market place. Because it was in that very market place that Lord Phillips of Sudbury faced a moral dilemma, of a kind that many of us face - without acknowledging it - every day."
