“Are we headed for more civilized politics as an innocent new Parliament reconvenes -respectful debate on substantive issues, witty rejoinders instead of personal abuse, pointed questions rather than extreme claims? Have they heard our plaintive cries?
There is a case for despair, but also cause for hope and, during what promises to be a brief and busy spring session, those questions will be answered -starting Friday with the note struck by the Speech from the Throne.”
Personally, I like a bit of conflict in my House of Commons-watching. I like some creative tension. I like passion. Why does everyone always seem to think “decorum” will be better?
What thinkest thou, O readers? Is “decorum” achieveable? Do we want it?
