But seriously

by

They’ve posted my latest column, which makes the case for shutting down Parliament altogether. From the comments it appears that about half the readers get the satire. Which is better than the usual average.

Actually, it wasn’t so much meant as satire as a demonstration of the seductiveness of undemocratic reasoning. So in a way it’s disappointing that so many readers could tell I was joking. I should have been more subtle.
