Brown has been doing the media rounds, and has a bright idea to solve everything. It seems that he has worked out that we need a National Council for Democratic Renewal to help bring about change in our political system.
Looking at this seriously, this simply shows that Brown cannot see any solution other than "Set up a Quango, give it a budget". All of his solutions, regardless of the nature of the problem, involve creating a national body, or an inquiry, or an investigation, or the like, and spending our money to pay someone else to do his job for him. And this, he calls "leadership"; it really is beyond parody. He's the PM; he should be deciding what reforms are necessary.
The thing is, though, we already have a National Council for Democracy. It is called "Parliament". Why not just renew that?
