What a week for British politics but was it a week when Britain demonstrated democracy at its best or at its low point? I would say that it was British politics at its best. There were some fine speeches made in the House of Commons this week underlining the quality of Britain´s Members of Parliament. It was also an exercise in democracy. In Spain, Theresa May´s Brexit deal would have sailed through parliament because all Members of Parliament would have towed the party line. A rebellion of the kind seen on Tuesday night in which 120 Members of Parliament voted against their own government is unheard of in Spain. It shows that MPs put their own views ahead of party politics.
