Sue Jones makes a very important point – that the Conservative Government, having refused to share military and intelligence information, is attempting to exercise totalitarian control over what should be democratic decision-making.

What can we do to reverse this policy?

Sackur said that as soon as Corbyn was elected, the Conservatives “issued propaganda” suggesting that Corbyn is a threat to national security. He also pointed directly to the government’s fundamental lack of accountability, transparency and democracy in the unprecedented move to refuse to share military and intelligence information, which is conventionally shared with the leader of the opposition.

Blunt simply confirmed Stephen Sackur’s point about the government’s lack of democracy, accountability and transparency.

Sackur exposed the rank hypocrisy of a government that claims to be democratic, yet does not tolerate parties with differing views, nor does it invite or engage in dialogue and critical debate, choosing instead to exercise  totalitarian control over what ought to be democratic decision-making, the will and thoughts of others, including the public that a government is meant to serve.
