This is an impossibly hard subject to introduce. It’s easy enough to explain why you want to save whales or children, even if it is very hard to actually save them. But why would anybody want to save “Parliament”? A talking shop for corrupt politicians, no?
Unfortunately, if you don’t save it, then you’re left with something even worse. Government, and ministers. Watch a few episodes of The Thick of It to convince yourself how bad that would be.
But Parliament, our mother of Parliaments, surely that doesn’t need saving? Unfortunately, almost unbelievably, it does. It’s difficult to describe why the government is passing an act of Parliament which abolishes Parliament, or why the turkeys are voting for Christmas. But they are.
Head on over Save Parliament – it’s explained there better than I ever could. And make sure you sign up to take action.
