Shouting down our democracy
l I didn't know whether to laugh or cry whilst watching the 'debate' on the IBRC Resolution Bill on TV3. If this was democracy at work, then God help democracy.
Evidently, a key requirement (maybe the only requirement) to be a government minister is the ability to heckle and shout down one's opponents, rather than being able to conduct a sensible debate and respond to opposition questions and concerns on what is a crucial piece of legislation.
At least the opposition had tried to read and comprehend the draft legislation in the short time allowed.
