Where are they going to sit?

Posted on

Amongst the many absurdities within the UK parliamentary system that some claim represents a democracy is the absurd fact that MPs do not actually have a seat in parliament.

Not all 650 MPs can assemble there and sit at the same time, and the absence of Sinn Fein makes no difference to that fact.

This will be exacerbated over the next five years. The number of seats on the Government benches is the same as on the Opposition side. However, there are 411 Government MPs and only around 230 Opposition members seeking a place.

The result is that Labour will never be able to sit all its MPs in parliament at once as they are being told they must never sit on the Opposition benches.

And we call this a working democracy?

Who are those claiming that to be the case kidding?
