Perhaps there is hope for us yet. The Sunday Times is reporting that Gordon Brown's plans to create a legally enforceable "code of conduct" for MPs are in turmoil.

On recent form it would not only be a good day, it would be a quite incredible one.

In a real democracy Parliament would have primacy, not a government appointed body. History shows that such bodies are susceptible to government pressure and will take a steer from ministers acting in their own interest. A working democratic process would see voters able to hold politicians to account. That is what we should strive for, not a pack of placemen carrying out someone else's agenda.

With a history of half-baked constitutional reforms; devolution and HoL, undertaken for what appeared to be short-term political gain, Nu Labour and in particular, Gordon Brown, are the last people anyone would want to see tinker with things.

On the contray,there are lots of things I would like to see Gordon Brown tinker with. A combined harvester,a wood chipper,an IED. Add your own.
