The death of our democracy is no longer happening in slow motion

Posted on

I wrote this two tweet thread yesterday in exasperation at the contempt the government has for Parliament, and the role that the current Speaker has in enabling this:

It was subsequently  pointed out to me that some of the things I suggest are not possible at present. My response was simple: if we really had parliamentary sovereignty they would be. It makes my case that Parliament is so constrained.

It seems to me that we are watching the death of our democracy in something that no longer looks like slow motion.
