”Backwoodsman wrote: And in order to overcome the arithmetic against that in the House, they are prepared to suspend parliament.”
Wrong. Backwoodsman did not write that at all. It was quoted from a piece elsewhere, written by someone else.
Attention to detail - always important.
”Consider the argument that Parliament would be suspending democracy by preventing the implementation of current legislation. Preventing Parliament from doing this would be implementing democracy.
Consider the argument that you are looking at it the wrong way round.”
Wrong again. The basis of our Parliamentary Democracy is that Parliament, and Parliament alone, can pass legislation, and Parliament, and Parliament alone, has the power to revoke legislation. Look it up.
I repeat - attention to detail, always important.
