British political system faces meltdown

Or so says the BBC in this article reporting on the launch of the report from The Power Inquiry, chaired by Baroness Helena Kennedy. I have downloaded this and will have a good read over the next few days to see what is in the detail.

I assume that this is linked to Gordon Browns statement about being in favour of lowering the voting age to 16 which I heartily support.

However, most encouraging was the statement that

"The inquiry's Power to the People report calls for a shift in control from
ministers to parliament, and from central to local government. "
