And Clegg is not wrong there!
Finally the dam has broken, and everyone is talking about changing Britain’s political system.
Dave Cameron’s warm words are all fine, great even – something that some could get their teeth into because they are what people want to hear. But that is the problem.
Just saying what people want o hear just will not cut it.
Today I’m setting out a plan of action to get all the changes we need delivered in just 100 days – making it possible for MPs to be sacked by constituents, abolishing the House of Lords, getting corrupt money out of politics and changing the electoral system to give everyone a voice. People will say it isn’t possible – parliament can’t act that quickly. I say the innate conservatism that marks out our political establishment is part of the problem. Let’s stop all this self-congratulatory hype about the mother of parliaments and get on with improving it.
That, Mr Cameron – is a pledge!
