New Vincent Browne TV show descends into farce
Writer/comedian takes a satirical look at TV3's latest experiment in democracy
The new Vincent Browne TV show aired on TV3 last night, which billed itself as "a bold new experiment in democracy" was a perfect illustration of why democracy doesn't work.
During the 90 minute televised "People's Debate", workable solutions and objective analysis were shoved aside by a cacophony of axe-grinding, electioneering, and miscellaneous shouting.
Much like the democratic system itself, the programme actively fuelled public disengagement with politics.
