A lesson in democracy?

Left Foot Forward have published an article of mine reviewing the hearings process and comparing it to the national political scene:

How illuminating it would be, then, if the Commons took a greater interest in ministerial appointments and submitted ministers to close questioning in public confirmation hearings before they could take office! What a powerful statement that would be of the authority of the electorate over the government of the day!
