We went this evening to the launch of Caroline Lucas’s new book about the need to reform the way that parliament works, Honourable Friends ? Parliament and the Fight for Change. She spoke with force and conviction about how she has found the House of Commons impossibly dysfunctional owing to the arcane system whereby MPs are whipped through voting without knowing what they are voting about (she may be too polite to describe it thus in the book). Lots of Greens were there. I’m looking forward to reading her recommendations as to how it all might be reformed.
