MPs should stand by their decisions

Imagine the outcry in the House of Commons if the Commons restaurants and bars only served genetically modified food – and announced this on a notice!

In the past others have suggested that decision-makers should live with their decisions and that:

  • nuclear waste storage, which is said to be so safe, has a depot located in the Commons basement
  • MPs, their families and advisers live in houses near similarly ‘safe’ and desirable incinerators and the quiet, scenic HS2 route.
  • MPs, their families and advisers use public education, transport and health provision.

That would focus their minds admirably.
