There are a couple of other 'democratic deficit' instances in the news currently; in the UK, a Tory MP has submitted a Private Member's Bill which would exempt both houses from the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (!). It has passed its first and second readins unopposed.

In the US, having passed a law to restrict 'lobbying' freebies, congressmen have been showing great resourcefulness in getting around its provisions.

"The worst system... except for all the others."
