‘The UK parliament is no longer a truly representative body.’ How far do you agree with this statement? In your answer you must refer to at least two views of representation.

Can you help me answer this question please!!!

Do you understand the question?

Then think of your own opinion on it, find a classmate who has an 'opposite' opinion and discuss with them.

I would say that's a pretty poor question to ask. They've unnecessarily snuck in the assertion that the UK Parliament once was a truly representative body.

I was about to say was it ever! Lol.

In my view it's often been the main big parties view and anyone with a mind to think otherwise can bog off. Then again that's who the voters most often tend to vote for, Conservative, Labour & Lib Dems, voters seem afraid, in fear almost to vote for anything than the status quo.

I don't see how that makes it a poor question.

I've put this in study help for you as it looks like an essay question to me.

Interested by the 'no longer' though, suggesting it's become less representative? I'm really not sure I agree or that the arguments are particularly strong to support that position, though I guess the sort of thing you might talk about is the deadlock around Brexit, and rhetoric about parliament blocking the will of the people?

what spec is this? in edexcel there isn't much in the spec about representation so i'd be surprised if they asked this.

in terms of points you could talk about the increase in partisanship and conflict between towing the party line and representing the views of your constituency. you could also separately talk about the resemblance model and how there are more women and ethnic minorities in parliament, making it more socially representative
