We Are Hughes sat with Dr Simon Longstaff of The Ethics Centre to discuss independent representation.
A great conversation about :
• the current member who crossed the floor to become an independent member vs a community minded independent.
• representative democracy and delegative democracy
• the difference between a representative who sincerely engages and brings their best judgement to bear in decisions and one who arrogantly thinks all arguments have been settled before they have even listened to their community.
An excellent and informative discussion. 4 minutes that is worth your time.
