Reforming PMQs — arguments against

by James Murphy

I’ve written a short piece for The Conversation about the latest proposals to reform Prime Minister’s Questions.  These reforms have been suggested because many members of the public say that the aggressive exchanges seen in Parliament turn them off politics.   In the piece, I argue two things: i) PMQs isn’t as bad as people think, and ii) we need robustness in our political discourse.

Have a look and see if you agree or not!  http://theconversation.com/dont-reform-rowdy-pmqs-we-want-backbenchers-fighting-our-corner-38316
