Labour has been the heavy loser in this horrible saga. Better is expected of them by their incandescent poorer constituents – and they are the government. They had the power and authority to reform every aspect of parliamentary custom and practice, but – like so much else left undone – they didn\’t, and many took the money.
I\’m pretty sure, in theory at least, that government doesn\’t have the power to reform Parliament. The legislature runs the legislature, no?
I agree it\’s a little different in practice, but in theory government has no power over P, very much the other way around, isn\’t it?
