Yeah, what politicians can get away with these days is astonishing.
It’s just so frustrating. You can have a million people marching for something, you can have a million signatures on a petition and it accomplishes precisely nothing. Well, the petition will get a boilerplate response and if there has to be a debate in parliament it will be the smallest possible committee meeting in a meeting room somewhere and producing the same boilerplate in the end.
Three completely unrelated stories in the news today.
As with all political decisions- this is a choice, deliberately made.
