Autonomous Mind posts on the article in today's Telegraph by Charles Moore viz-a-viz David Cameron (link to the article in AM's post), the latter with whom I met yesterday at one of his surgeries.
Whilst my meeting with Mr. Cameron may well prove fruitful - the subject of which was Sheltered Housing, Warden retention, Housing Law being used to subvert Contract Law to remove Wardens and the dictatorial attitude of the Legal Services Commission - I began my alloted 15 minutes with a question to him. In seeking an appointment with one's MP with a view to obtaining support for rectification of what is seen as a problem; in his (David Cameron's) particular case, am I talking to my constituency MP or the Prime Minister - the answer to which was "Both".
That answer raises the question of whether a Prime Minister should also be a constituency MP, because as Prime Minister David Cameron must always temper his 'support' for a constituent's case/complaint with government policy, a government of which he is the Leader. In other words, how can a constituent rely on his/her MP fighting their corner in Parliament when that MPs views/decisions are dictating policy?
Another 'deficit' in our present 'democracy'?
