Smokescreen or the real deal? The New Recall Bill
You may have noticed from The Ministry of Truth that political accountability has been a subject close to our hearts.
Indeed it was 2007 when we got our Bill to a second reading in the House of Commons, so congratulations due for the current Recall Bill getting past its third and final reading.
But is it a smokescreen or will we actually be able to force a by-election for misbehaving MPs? Zac Goldsmith pointed out the acid test is whether MPs caught up in the expenses scandal could be recalled under the new Bill.
Regrettably the answer's no.
