Words to live by

As we try to make sense of the events ahead, I’m struck by this argument:

Parliament should not be treated as a plaything, that lives or dies at the Prime Minister’s pleasure; …elections should not be rigged to the governing party’s advantage, in timing as in any other respect; …the public should not be deprived of fair and open competition among the various contenders for power.
