Politicians Dodging Tricky Questions

Theresa May MP, Tory Shadow Leader of the House, yesterday published a dossier listing nearly a thousand questions that Labour has refused answer. She says

“There is growing evidence that the culture of spin is alive and well in the heart of Whitehall. It is clear from this new dossier that Labour Ministers have systematically sought to avoid public scrutiny by evading awkward Parliamentary Questions. Labour may not like it, but the fundamental purpose of Parliament is to scrutinise and hold the government of the day to account.

Not only are Labour’s actions deeply corrosive to our political system and the impartiality of the Civil Service, but I fear it will fuel further cynicism with politics and politicians.”

Obviously that won’t happen with Ask Dave. He’ll give Guido straight-forward answers to the two simple questions which WebCameron users have overwhelmingly voted the ones they most want answered.

Dave won’t cynically evade akward questions to avoid public scrutiny because that would fuel further cynicism with politics and politicians… right?
