Without appearing to be making today Richard North Appreciation Day, the following must qualify for the title above and is taken from a post of his.
"Nature abhors a vacuum. When parliament gives up its powers, others move in [to] fill that vacuum and exercise power on their own behalf. Strangely though, that lesson will be lost on all but a very few MPs, while the rest conspire to destroy what residual powers may remain, paving the way for the final breakdown of our society."
How very, very true!
