A stellar performance from Stella Creasy on last night's This Week with her pitch about Citizens Assemblies and a follow-on discussion. Check the defensive reaction her pitch gets from the three grumpy old men, presenter Andrew Neil, the subject of much criticism over alleged lack of impartiality and his vested interests with The Spectator magazine and ex Tory Michael 'choo choo' Portllo and Blairite Alan 'sadmanontheleft' Johnson . There must be something in this....
Interesting that on this episode, Andrew Neil announced that the current series will be the last for the programme.
Watch this and observe how outmoded his stewardship looks.
Full marks to Creasy for her efforts here, despite the best efforts of everyone in the studio to put down her initiative.
For many, Citizens Assemblies are being touted as a much more democratic way of making decisions and involving ordinary people in decision making at a time when Westminster and government seems unfit for purpose and unable to move forward.
