I really am beginning to wonder about the current parliament in the UK. A story on the BBC reports on how MPs have voted to exclude themselves from the Freedom of Information act – an act that was widely seen as a positive step toward making public bodies more transparent and accountable. What with the recent law to prevent anybody protesting within a mile of the Houses of Parliament, it seems that MPs are increasingly building a legislative moat between themselves and the British public. In my opinion, a government that makes a habit of creating one rule for the nation, and another for themselves is not representing the best interests of that country, and is losing touch with the people. Are politicians really working for their public anymore? Or is the public becoming their enemy?
