But Max says that the decision making process is actually in the hands of only a few people - not the many that make up the full council. As in Britain, the committee makes a recommendation and most of those recommendations become statute without any discussion in full council/parliament. they just get nodded through.
And I'm not actually arguing FOR one side. I am only trying to present as best I can an opposing point of view - it's all about that level playing field thing. People should hear both sides of the argument, not just the FiA promoted one.
