Saturday 1 May 2004 Response to ‘Parliament in the Public Eye’

Policy Watch #3

The Academy of Ideas response to the Hansard Society Commission on Parliament in the Public Eye’s Call for Evidence, May 2004 'The use of IT is one way politicians are trying to re-establish Parliament’s legitimacy by making new connections with the population. The more connections they make, however, the more they expose their lack of ideas. The lack of political engagement is a political problem that will only be solved by political change - not by IT.'
