A fascinating documentary (~30mins) that looks behind the scenes of British quasi-democracy. After discovering that MPs have no legal obligation not to lie, director Richard Symons embarks on a quest to introduce one, through a ‘Misrepresentation of the People Act’.
You can view the bill – now called the ‘Elected Representatives (Prohibition of Deception) Bill’ – here. So far a total of 35 MPs have expressed support for idea; you can email your representative about it here and keep up to date with the latest news regarding its progress here.
