So a media largely in the hands of foreign owners is expected to guarantee our parliamentary democracy? Doesn't that worry you?
Sorry I'm just going by "The media have to do their job and hold the government to account," to which I'd say their job is to report the facts. It's the Opposition's job to hold government to account (actually it's Parliament's job and talk of back benchers revolting is missing the point that they are also doing this job).I didn't say that.
It's clearly not perfect but IMO I'd rather they were there than not.I would say it's more of a by-product and only when it suits them.
But this is a bit of a distraction from the topic, sorry.
Fact check: It was Deadringers (same timeslot and podcast, though).If anyone listens to the Now Show, their 'David Davis, Master Negotiator' skits were great.
I am afraid I do not have that much faith in our Politicians. IMHO, no-one foresaw a "leave" vote, and, no-one had the slightest idea of the in-depth implications of such a vote......
This isn't game of poker, they know what our cards are and we know theirs.
Given the job which much of the Media did during the Referendum campaign that thought does not fill me with optimism.[/QUOTE].....
The media have to do their job and hold the government to account, without scrutiny, god only knows what we would end up with.
The short answer is, No, I am not happy with the situation, but then as I said in the beginning, I did not vote "leave".Are you happy with what was agreed last week? Do you feel that the playing secret meant that she got a great deal for leavers? Or perhaps maybe a better policy with consensus and oversight would have agreed upon a strategy that would have been beneficial? The EU did this. They were very open as to their aims. And then they walked all over us.
