I would like to think that running a country requires a bit of professionalism and the theatrics, buffoonery and legal protections for untruths of centuries ago are no longer appropriate. Perhaps more regulated operations, practices and processes where people are held accountable for words and actions whilst within office would be more efficient. You know, just like in the real world.

It is depressing to think that reform is probably not possible, where would you even start? Is there anybody happy with the current system?
Start point: do not promote democracy as something good to aim for......
