Taking the Party out of Politics - Episode 15

Parliament

It's supposed to be about our representatives doing their best for us.  

It's supposed to be careful consideration of new laws.


It's actually dominated by the needs of Political Parties.  

It's actually an old system, dominated by slick, centralised, powerful Political Parties.


When it works, it's because good people are making it work DESPITE the system.  

If it weren't for those good people, the system would encourage and enable things to go wrong more often than they already do.
