According to the Beeb's news ticker, the government has been defeated over changes to the religious hatred bill currently going through Parliament. That's a second Commons defeat for Blair (although only 288–278 this time).
And according to the BBC, they've just lost another vote by one. Hot damn!
And again according to the Beeb, Blair himself didn't vote in the division they lost by one.

This almost certainly means that her days are numbered.
