Do we in the UK live in a parliamentary democracy?

Tuesday, 13 March 2018, 7.30pm
East Ham Working Men's Club, Boleyn Road

Don’t miss the next meeting of East London Compass, to debate the question:

“Do we live in a parliamentary democracy?”

We’ll be joined by Alex Runswick from Unlock Democracy and Christine Shawcroft from the Greater London Assembly and the event will be chaired by Rachel Collinson. They’ll be helping us with the answers to the biggest questions of parliamentary democracy:

What is Parliament’s role in a democracy?

What is the extent of its power – and what are its limits?

And what is a Prime Minister’s Patronage when it’s at home?

With Brexit, devolution and constitutional upheaval, theĀ purpose of Parliament is under greater scrutiny, and it’s crucial we have a firm grasp of what our Parliament is for.

The event is free to attend and open to everyone.
