4 Responses to Speaker makes major contribution to development of parliamentary democracy

  1. I don’t want Westminster politics full stop but the idea that parliamentary democracy can coexist with an unelected chamber ie House of Lords is not sustainable. If there was to be a 2nd chamber then maybe it should be made in proportionality to votes cast.

    Even better vote YES for independence and we don’t have to concern ourselves with the like of the Lord Archer, Foulkes and Forsyth of this world.

  2. Perhaps the Speaker’s in a hurry to leave his mark – according to the BBC he’s told his constituency organisation that he’s planning to step down as MP after the next Westminster election, with someone called Boris taking his seat in Parliament (but, please God, not in the Speaker’s chair).

  3. Perhaps he can explain how exempting various aspects of MPs’ practises(never mind his own) from FOI is helping democracy; he is a toadying nebbish, his actions regarding transparency and accountability have been shameful.
