I am quoted in this article by openDemocracy. I told them:

“There is a clear trend of democratic erosion in the UK, with opacity increasingly favoured over transparency, and already weak checks and balances on political power being disregarded.”

“The prime minister should hold themselves to the highest standards of transparency. Yet the discrepancies in Liz Truss’ records about her husband’s job – even if a bureaucratic oversight or mistake – reflects a broader culture of secrecy and a disregard for democratic norms like accountability. That is now the rule of how the UK government is run, and not the exception to it.”
