trying to wrest control of Parliament with no accountability

It is possible to argue that the attempt was wise, or unwise. It is possible to argue that the attempt was desirable or not. It is possible to argue that it was a good use of an opposition day or not.

Just about the only thing it is not possible to argue was that it was not accountable. The opposition had to account for the reasons they wanted to do this, and Parliament held them to account and found them wanting. But is was 100% held to account for its proposal.
