Here’s how we can make our MPs more accountable | Letters | The Guardian


Letter: Dr Andrew Bates suggests having professional appraisals and fact-checking exercises to keep our elected representatives doing what they should

 

============================================

Very good suggestions, but I feel there is one drawback at least.

Would anyone wish to stand to be a Member of Parliament on this basis. Not saying that MPs lie, but do they always tell the real truth.

Also with many of the facts that MPs and more so Ministers are given by the respective workers and Civil Servants who would check the information they are giving, could they not mislead MPs and Ministers if they so wished to or am I being to cynical.
