Why is the house of commons often called a talking shop?

Question asked by: knowitall

The reason is that less and less quality debate happens here.

And also when there is quality debate it rarely changes the outcome anyway.

In the past it was more possible for an idea to be tossed open for genuine debate for people to decide on.

Now that politics is much more along party lines and whips and being told what to do and think, then it stifles thought.

As career politicians too many of them don't have opinions or knowledge on many topics and therefore the quality of debate just isn't there anymore.

Hence parliament becomes little more than an uninteresting talking shop.
