More Spontaneity In Assembly Sessions

How can Plenary sessions become more interesting? A member of the Derry audience pointed out how difficult it is to maintain an interest in watching Plenary sessions.

The panel agreed that this was a problem. David Ford lamented the ‘dull speeches, dull questions and even duller answers’. Gregory Campbell pointed out that it is difficult for questions to be topical considering the time departments require to prepare answers but the Speaker, William Hay, did offer some hope by revealing plans to make Question Time more topical and less regimented.

Would more lively debates and spontaneity encourage you to watch Assembly Plenary sessions? Are the any MLAs you find more interesting than others? Should our MLAs make an effort to ‘entertain’?
