In my naivety I had thought that Martin might have asked somebody from industry to lead the investigation, or at least to take part. But no. Instead, three time-serving MPs will be doing it. So three MPs, who have been in Parliament for a collective 64 years between them, will be coming up with ideas and reforms. No MP from the 1997, 2001 or 2005 intakes are included. No one from outside the House of Commons is included. And we really think they will do anything but support the status quo where they think they can get away with it?
I feel a whitewash coming on. Or am I just being a cynic? Wouldn't be the first time, I suppose.
