While the draft budget will grab the headlines locally, Labour tried to block the tuition fees hike in the Lords last night.  They failed with at least two Unionist Northern Ireland Lords backing the Coalition proposals, Lord Trimble and Lord Maginnis.  Trimble is a full blown member of the Conservatives so his vote is not that much of a surprise but why did Maginnis join him? Is it the first outworkings of Tom Elliott's latest deal with the Tories?
