You want to be a parliamentarian? Might be worth reading @MemorialU Alex Marland's new book "Whipped." Or at least watching him on @TheAgenda tonight. Did you know even the most mavricky MPs vote w/ their parties 96% of the time? Cuz they're whipped. 8/11pm @tvo #cdnpoli #onpoli
From now on, we must ask every school-going child and every parliamentarian to view this video (subtitled for non-hindi speakers) so that it is hard-wired into their minds...This is a required course in how Indian Democracy should be practised..
Birthday wishes to my valued colleague Shri Ji. He has made a valuable contribution as our Finance Minister. He has also distinguished himself as a great Parliamentarian. Praying for his long and healthy life.
