Which parliament serves its people better ?
Last Wednesday our parliament spent over seven hours praising Thatcher (at our expense). Bercow had initially refused Cameron's request, saying we can do it next Monday when we meet anyway. Miliband backed Cameron and Bercow gave way.
Yesterday, the New Zealand parliament voted on the definition of marriage. See what happened when marriage between same sex partners was approved. The House of Commons often leaves me close to tears but not for a good reason. Time to emigrate ?
