It's understandable that Americans may not fully understand our subtleties and nuances of centuries of changes but less excusable when it's our own Prime Minister and those who are charged with holding our system of government to account. The BBC interviewed with Douglas Carswell last Thursday. At around 01:19mins in Mr Carswell was asked the following question by a BBC presenter:
"But this is your Government, would you vote against it, if you had a chance?"Carswell rightly corrects him:
I point out that I'm not a member of this Government...I sit on the backbenches, I'm a member of the Legislature, my job is to hold this Government to account.Is it any wonder the media fail so miserably in their supposed role as the fourth estate when they can't even get the basics right?
