Quote of the day

Alex Kane:
But, as George Washington noted over 200 years ago, ‘A government without true opposition and a place for that opposition may be dictatorial, or it may be docile: yet it must always be undemocratic in shape and practice.’

Opposition will be expensive to create and sustain in the assembly, but isn’t it a price worth paying if the end result is better government and the removal of Stephen Nolan from his position as unofficial leader of the opposition?
