This is a welcome announcement.

In Prime Minister’s Questions today (June 8), David Cameron has announced that he is “working” with the Electoral Commission to extend the deadline for registering to vote, after the gov.uk website broke down last night.

He said: “People should continue to register today.

“The electoral commission has made a statement today, urging the government to consider options to extend the deadline.

“We’re working with them to do just that.”

At last, after more than a year, this prime minister appears to be actually doing the right thing, rather than just talking about it.
