The politics of the 1600s
This CNN report is interesting
it is another symptom of a reverting to the politics of the early 1600s (prior to Habeas Corpus and the Bill of Rights).
An interesting theme is the throwing of a shoe. It is sad that people take it out on the police. However, the strategy of the police including imprisoning an MP (Tom Brake) - who was not guilty of any offence - is something that needs reviewing.
The danger of the strengthening of the executive (the King) against the people is a generalised striking out against "the system" which does not try to analyse its failings, but is merely a randomised retaliation.
We do need to reemphasise democracy. However, arguing for that is a challenge in the environment where MPs are seen as spending more time on filling in expense returns rather than protecting the people of the UK.
