Sharing notes

If there ever was a grossly misused word in this country, it is ‘debate’ in the context of our leaders in parliament.

Our leaders discuss and share notes; they never debate. They say ‘amen’ to one another and make speeches to the choir but they never ever debate.

The occasions when they do engage in animated verbal jousting were disagreements between the ruling party and the opposing groups.
