Britain has gone beserk. I returned on Thursday to find my country in one of its periodic fits of moral horror. At such times, witches have been burnt, monkeys hanged as French spies and Catholics hounded out of office.
Extravagance, genuine mistake, sly acquisitiveness and outright criminal fraud are now jumbled together in the national mind as though there were no moral differences. Judgment has fled. This is the worst possible climate in which to consider root-and-branch reform of our system of representative democracy.
Tom Harris makes similar points.
I agree that would indeed be the worse time to make constitutional changes.
