I’ve been reading and thinking for a few days about the prorogation of Parliament, an occurrence for the second year in a row, and what it all means. It’s true that there has been general outrage from those who identify themselves as opposition voters. And the media has been in a frenzy of hyperbolic ravings and outlandish characterizations. There’s certainly nothing “despotic” or undemocratic about what the Prime Minister has done, no matter how unseemly it may appear to people. It would be dishonest to both ridicule people one year ago for calling the proposed coalition government last year a “coup”, and in the same breath be able to call prorogation an “insult to democracy”.
