Is Traditional Politics In Terminal Decline?

  • Sep 9, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • Wilson room

Peter Hain MP has agreed to host a meeting with us in the House of Commons to discuss the state of British Politics and whether it is so disconnected from citizens that it is fast losing trust and credibility.

Peter Hain was recently responsible for a Report about how MPs disengage themselves from citizens and how Labour and Lib Dems recruit many of their MPs in house through party professionals so as just to re-invent themselves. So it should be an interesting discussion.

Fears of a widening chasm between the major parties and the electorate have intensified since the success of UKIP in the European elections. A Guardian/ICM poll has revealed 56% of people think the biggest problem with Westminster is politicians breaking promises, while 44% are fed up with careerist MPs who "look and sound the same".

Caroline Dinenage will also be a speaker and Carioline has been an MP since 2010 and in April 2014 she was appointed as Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to the Financial Secretary to the Treasury and Minister for Women.

In 2010, Gosport Constituency Conservative Association held a United States-style open primary pre-election, inviting all constituents, of whatever political affiliation, to complete a postal ballot to select a candidate. Caroline  won the Gosport primary.

Caroline is one of only two MPs who have been appointed in an open primary.

Also speaking will be John Mann MP who has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Bassetlaw since 2001. John believes in reform of our parliamentary and Party system and ran a primary in his Bassetlaw constituency in 2010 when he asked local Labour voters who they wanted to lead the party. He has called for the Labour party to introduce primaries as a more democratic and open method of selecting the right candidate to represent Labour in local selections.

    I guess the Scottish vote for the Union and an 86 % participation reinstates our belief in democracy. So as the PM has announced, the West Lothian factor and Barnett principle will be reviewed and give the English more devolved powers.

      I'm hoping William Hague will do a more thorough job than just address the old questions. We should aim for engagement at the right local levels, proper Federal UK Subsidiarity, with regional constituencies, not just the old asymmetric "countries". And if we establish the right subsidiary regional constituencies, we can sort out the right representational arrangements too.

      September 18, 2014

  • Francis S.

    Great that you three are thinking of meeting together. Just two developments since last postings.

    First the event at London Met will be on and it will be on October 21st in the afternoon and will be about how do you develop action around political issues so right on target for what we are discussing. All still being worked out but hope to get a draft version on site by Friday. Will probably be called "Political Voice & Coalition Building."

    Secondly Peter Hain has now agreed to do a follow up Internet TV Interview of the House of Commons meeting and will be at the end of October. Date to be finalised as have to contact the TV studio and would like to get Christ Church students involved and am meeting John their lecturer tomorrow - so should know the date very soon.

    Together with the other meetings we have planned your ideas of developing more deliberative environments and conversation cafe type meetings will fit really well - and we could even have an embryonic strategy here.

    Well Done Francis. You have have so broad minded and open to not only facilitating but also being an effective agent for change.

    1 · September 17, 2014

  • Francis S.

    Yes Dan I think there is a way of using the more set piece meetings as catalysts to develop more conversational meetings as follow up. Remember we have a very varied membership in GlobalNet21 that includes not just meetup but a growing interest outside of that as well. Many like the House of Commons format and others don’t. I would hate to dictate one format on everyone so it is best to let a thousand flowers bloom.

    1 · September 16, 2014

    • Anne B.

      Process pedant here! I agree that people, me included, like the venue, themes, contributors AND CHAIRING at House of Commons events. There is consistent DIS-satisfaction with format, a neglected facet of this otherwise successful package...please leave open a space to explore this anew? Otherwise there is an unintended diktat. In friendship

      September 16, 2014

  • Francis S.

    Well both Nick and Anne like my suggestion that you get together (hopefully with Dan as well) to see how we can develop some follow up conversations around the Political Decline meeting last week. So lets try and do that using the big set piece meetings as catalysts to bring people into those conversations. We have a House of Commons meeting on Homelessness on Oct 28th and probably on Nov 20th one on Human Trafficking so the interest in politics, issues and change will keep on the boil. Then if it goes ahead the meeting at London Met as well. So there is plenty to fuel these conversations. We just need a plan from you all (hopefully working together) on how we are going to do it.

    September 15, 2014

    • Dan S.

      In a nutshell I'd suggest a series of fast-paced set-piece panel discussions, each on a specific political focus, each with distinct and polarized speakers, structured to incorporate the best possible pre-submitted questions and very strongly chaired, followed by break-out sessions led by panel members (or their representatives or stand-ins), ending with a wrap-up and a carefully designed evaluation form that would give everyone who wanted the opportunity to feedback constructively on the positions of the panel, issues raised, courses of action forward etc. Will have a think, happy to discuss further after my meta workshop next week.

      September 16, 2014

    • Anne B.

      Happy to meet up to devise something. I'm away for a week so some dates after your event Dan, and Nick?

      September 16, 2014

  • Francis S.

    So Dan you could talk to Anne and Nick and see how we can develop conversational type meetings as well as our more formal meetings so they work together in synch then that would be a great step forward. And remember with MPs you will not get many to stay around for a long time and engage in small group meetings. It is hard enough getting MPs for monthly meetings and if you quadruple the work to achieve this then it would become impossible. So we have to find a way to work using set piece meetings, conversational meetings, house meetings, webinars and online forums. Nick’s idea of skype breakouts for follow up to our webinars is a good idea and you can now get webinar platforms that allow breakouts during a meeting.

    So there is loads to discuss and if you three could start something then that would help a lot so yes talk to each other in the very first conversation.

    September 16, 2014

  • Francis S.

    One of the developments over the last few months is GlobalNet21’s growing links with Universities. Now some join in on our webinars whilst at others students attend our meetings especially those at the House of Commons. At the meeting on “Is British Politics in Terminal Decline” there we had about 25 students attend from Canterbury Christ Church and London Met Universities. The University of Greenwich will soon be joining us in our collaborative events. It is becoming important to us because it expands the public square of debate and adds to the mission of Universities to engage the public and also different communities. We hope this will grow and grow.

    4 · September 14, 2014

    • Francis S.

      Yes I agree with both comments and hopefully as well can help to take universities out to communities. Helen Wendall's famous book "The Wandering Scholars" was about medieval university teachers frustrated with those universities and going out to communities. They were the Golliards.

      September 15, 2014

    • Dan S.

      Lots of potential here.

      September 16, 2014

  • Nick H.

    I would like to see us having conversations, preferably in small groups, or pairs, perhaps within a larger forum. These would be from our perspective as customers. We elect politicians to do a job for us after all.

    These conversations could be about:

    What would be rational policies for education, health, policing, justice, defence etc? (We know that most of the ones we have now do not work optimally).

    What would be the best ways to do politics? (The old rather confrontational and non-inclusive ways of doing it are so old fashioned and don't fit the challenges we face.)

    What can we do, individually and collectively, to spark the change we want to see?

    Do you want to play?

    3 · September 15, 2014

    • Francis S.

      Would be happy to follow up this way NIck and Dan on this thread and Anne Bennet are all interested in more conversational meetings and if you all could get something going between you as a follow up then that would be great.

      1 · September 15, 2014

    • Francis S.

      Bye the way the lecturer who attended our House of Commons meeting from London Met is doing a session at London Met's Social Science open day on how you influence decision makers and in collaboration with London Met we will also make it a meetup so that is one follow up. This is still under discussion but if it happens will be on Oct 21st.

      2 · September 15, 2014

  • Francis S.

    I am still happy to develop some follow up activities to this meeting as it did have as Anne said a buzz. so if you have any ideas about this please write them. Would be happy to do an open space event ( and one is in the offing done jointly with the New European Group) in the new year and you may be interested in helping and even facilitating this Anne) but there are other ideas we could pursue - house meetings, study groups, developing what Dan has started in his group conversations, webinars and doing social reports on this that would go on our Internet TV chznnel that might soon be set up on social reporting.

    So please use this discussion as a channel to take steps forward with some imaginaative ideas and then we can all see what we can do.

    September 15, 2014

  • JOSEPH H.

    I decided not to go,and it is self revealing,because it substantiates the reality that these people in parliament do not represent us a majority private and Oxbridge educated ,fast numbers from the legal profession,or have left university working as researchers for MPs and then fast tracked to available seats.

    The reality is those buffoons and criminals (obviously not all) have as backbenchers vitually no power.Even the cabinet led by Gungho Freddy has minimal power.

    The decisions are already made by huge corporations in their self interest.

    I think that groups like this,which I sense have at their core human decency and integrity are the way forward ,by putting human needs and not market forces on the agenda, can slowly bring about a real democracy.

      Question time is controlled opposition, absolutely nothing of value is produced, Only the illusion of debate

      September 14, 2014

    • Ian G.

      IMHO, the problem is the concept of debate itself moderated (controlled) or otherwise - it reinforces simplistic either/or yes/no extremes. What we need is constructive conversation and dialogue - just like last week's MeetUp.

    A fine demonstration of why traditional politics is in decline: defensive and self agrandising. What about a new model which is more responsive in these days of faster communication and mass marketing? Candidate selection that relies on parties and later control through whips does not allow true democracy. As I have previously reported there are other ways for candidates to be selected making them freer to express their opinions.

    September 14, 2014

  • Terence F.

    Despite the brave attempt to persuade us that there is some dynamism left in Westminster politics there are no new ideas about how to be more representative of the electorate nor any means to monitor our MPs.

    Quite Correct, it was Plato,but in the his mythical kingdom of Kallipolis the rulers were Philosophers (lovers of Wisdom) . This is a much larger arena then just the intellect.

    Also the basis of Plato's work was a quest for the enduring and the permanent (unfortunately did not reside in this World) But it seems to me that rulers informed by this approach would do a better job then the soundbites of the current crop.
    Also how many of the current crop of Public School boys would get a look in.

    My understanding was these rulers would not be corrupted by the short term-ism of a quest for personal power , they would be out of the traditional political scrum.

    Remember though that the so-called place that gave birth to democracy was a slave owning state.

    Getting back to my original premise -yes I would prefer a state ruled by those that loved wisdom.

    i wish to recount an experience I had with Christopher Chope MP. i recently reurned to the UK destitute as a result of a change in visa policy in China. because of mass immigration from Eastern Europe rules had changed and I failed to pass the habitual residence test that classified me as if i was a newcomer from Bulgaria. as a result i spent 3 months homeless often sleeping rough and even begging from time to time. Not much fun in winter. now i did some research and found that Christchurch MP and arch Thatcherite Christopher Chope (Con) Christchurch had supported this legislation

    i then wrote to him as a CITIZEN asking if this legislation he supported should also apply to British born people ( i am born in London as indeed was my father) i got a reply asking if I was a constituent .

    In other words Christopher Chope who claimed £800 of public expenses to have his Chesterfield sofa restuffed REFUSED POINT BLANK to answer my question as a citizen

    September 13, 2014

  • JOSEPH H.

    The answer is a resounding yes,because the underlying bedrock,that we trust and have faith in those representatives of the people has been shattered.
    I do not have any interest in a dialogue with those MP's . It is a select club that is peddles sophistry,downright lies and a skill in avoiding any uncomfortable questions.
    Socrates proposed a state run by philosopher Kings that could be objective as they in a sense were above it all, in having no vested interests.

    PS. They are claiming more expenses then before the scandal and 37% employ members their own family at our expense

    September 13, 2014

    • Francis S.

      It was Plato who wrote about philosopher kings and these he described as the men of gold with two other classes below that of silver and bronze. Do we really want a class system based on meritocracy or intellect or do we want a system where everyone is valued?

    • A former member
      A former member

      i want a system based on results Francis, I am not interested in electing surgeons or engineers, unless we have an intelligent altruistic electorate and a genuinely objective and intellectual mass media we can never get the typeof government we need. thats why reluctantly i believe the democratic experiment has failed. Do you know that you can get a £5000 for failing to register to vote. This hardly indicates that voting is a benefit if one must be THREATENED to participate . whats more because of our first past the post system we have a situation where the vast majority of votes in the UK are absolutely worthless . even if one registers to vote the data is often held by overseas companies ( usually American Neo Con) that sell our personal data to third parties for mailing lists such as credit card offers ( pre approved) even to people with a history of bad debt.

      September 13, 2014

  • Francis S.

    Terence and Dan you are right but you will not get the sort of discussion you want with MPs right off and not with a large audience most of whom want to ask questions and make comments - often not related. We should look at those meetings as catalysts to start other discussion and Dan you could well use your group to do that if you wanted. Carrying things forward depends on people in our network wanting to and then setting about doing it. So if you want to organise a follow up discussion let me know and we will do it.

    September 12, 2014

    • Francis S.

      Yes there was a buzz and there is after many meetings but how do we capitalise on that buzz. We could have a follow up and Peter has described one model but again traditional in some respects. But let's go through ideas of how a follow up can happen. So let's have some ideas that we can follow on. Peter has suggested one idea. Any more offers?

      September 13, 2014

    • Francis S.

      And we should do something post referendum as whatever the result it could change politics profoundly. And when we do remember we one have a growing student and community audience that is additional to our meetup site so it is a wide and growing network and we need to find ways of including these.

      September 13, 2014

  • Peter F.

    Agree with that Francis.
    For a follow-up meeting I suggest we need a counterpoint speaker - someone able to say why Politics is so broken, why so much of the electorate are in despair about it and so forth. This would provide more met on the bone for the MPs to respond to - they'd have to!
    That said, the last thing needed is a speaker with a default stance of hatred for the MPs. Sorrow perhaps. But not hatred. imho

    1 · September 13, 2014

  • Terence F.

    Thanks Francis for the talk. I feel that it was mostly self promotion and self justification and did not touch upon the restructuring of the political system including the jury selection model suggested at a recent GN21

    2 · September 11, 2014

    • Dan S.

      I agree - the standard format of speakers, questions, deflections and no discussion leaves a lot to be desired in seriously exploring a topic to develop viable courses of action and ways forward. This meetup did what it said on the tin and answered a very predictable question through a convoluted demonstration without ever really touching on the root causes (our economic and social paradigms), let alone what to do about them - the primaries idea seemed like a superficial measure at best, cynically presented. Had a far more balanced and well rounded discussion following the event, so still appreciated.

      2 · September 12, 2014

  • Terence F.

    ...suggested at a recent GN21 meeting. No involvement of the public save petitioning and periodic voting for stale candidates was considered. Removing whips would allow change to start. We need to be aware of which MP has voted for what.

    2 · September 11, 2014

    • Dan S.

      Agreed.

      1 · September 11, 2014

  • Francis S.

    Thanks everyone who attended last night, as it was a great meeting with real levels of controlled passion. I agree that many questions were not answered (they never are) and have some agreement with Ed that the direct questions about transformation and evidence of power was not there. However I also agree with Jeremy that the questions from the floor were of a really high level and they usually are. That is why my guiding principle for these meetings is that the audience is as important always as the panel. Though orchestrating a meeting to keep panel member to time and making sure audience comments do not become speeches is important and although difficult at time still lots of fun! It is always enjoyable.

    To retain any credibility, our politicians need to demonstrate an ability to ACT and ACHIEVE as well as TALK. With systems that are timely, accountable and transparent. We are awaiting the outcome of a Public Enquiry into a staggeringly inept Harbour Revision Order that took place over five years ago, and STILL sits with the Sec. of State for Transport for a decision. This would not be acceptable in the commercial world - why is it accepted by the Establishment?

    September 10, 2014

  • Ed

    Wandered off the point somewhat. Saddened to find an MP so clearly obsessed with re-election to an organisation about which he was then unreservedly scathing. Even if he was skilled in achieving his objective. It would have been nice to hear what all the "power" he had (or thought he had) had actually achieved. Compared to G21's usually high standard, this was a disappointing evening

    Thought Provoking quite an engaging debate.
    John the MP appears to have broken the mould and very much a people's MP. Both presentations obviously reflected their personal political philosophies. The audience covered a wide array of issues. However the system has historical mould and the the concept of collective responsibility while in government does encroach on MP' abilities to serve the electorate. Responsibility to government unanimity seems to outweigh loyalty to electorate. Thanks Francis.

    As this meeting is starting half an hour earlier than normal, does this mean that it's expected to finish about 7:45pm?

    I'm sorry I can't come. I would have wanted to say that the process politicians are almost forced to use by the system is hopelessly old fashioned. Our problems and opportunities are so complex we need far more cooperation. positive thinking and openness to outside thinking than happens now. Imagine people sitting in a circle listening to each other, not sitting opposite each other and arguing or even trading polite insults.
