The Great Parliamentary Fix
Whipping, like stripping, is best done in private.
(SIR FREDDIE WARREN )
Of all the issues that divide the front and back benches in the House of Commons, it's perhaps the activities of the ' usual channels ' - the Government and Opposition Chief Whips - that cause the most bitterness and resentment. The Chief Whips not only control their own members, they also manage the business of Parliament itself.
Former Chief Whips The Rt Hon William Whitelaw , mp, and The Rt Hon John Silkin , MP, the Speaker, The Rt Hon
George Thomas , mp, and critical backbenchers, give their views to Robert Carvel. Producer

enjoy international reputations for their achievements on the football field. They have also earned a less welcome reputation for the aggressive behaviour of a section of their supporters, culminating in the riot at Hampden
Park last May at the end of the Scottish Cup Final. The apparent Protestant versus Catholic nature of the violence between the fans has caused great concern to many bodies, including the Church of Scotland, and there has been much criticism of the clubs for their role in perpetuating sectarian conflict. But to what extent can Rangers and Celtic be blamed for fostering and exacerbating sectarian tendencies, or to what extent are the clubs themselves a product of historical tensions buried deep in the social and cultural fabric of West Central Scotland?
