Simon Burns MP puts down EDM saluting Ted Kennedy

Long-time Democrat-supporting Tory MP Simon Burns has tabled this EDM:

"That this House warmly welcomes the awarding of an honorary knighthood to Senator Edward Kennedy for services to US-UK relations and to the peace process in Northern Ireland; recognises the contribution he has made over 46 years in the US Senate to advancing the cause of human rights, universal healthcare and a more just society; and acknowledges that his contribution to public service has established him as one of the finest and most effective US senators in the history of that august body."

Lord Tebbit won't be pleased.
