A Very British Problem
Demands for transparency when most institutions preach more than they practise. (UK spelling and damn the spell checker)
Demands for honesty and clarity in a society where most of the better off prefer to run and hide.
Demands for control in a society that pays lip service to freedom.
No such problems exist in Europe, with its traditions of authoritarianism.
Maybe this is just MP's venting. They like to do that.
