“Whipped: the secret world of party discipline.” A documentary about the secret world of party discipline, which forces MLAs to vote against their constituents and even their own conscience.
Hold onto your hats everyone, Election 2013 just took a twist.
Sean Holman, formerly of Public Eye Online, is about to première his stunning new documentary, and in doing so may change the way British Columbians view party politics – and it’s about time.
In my opinion this documentary is long past due, and I am exceptionally happy to share this with you, and hope that you may attend one of the screenings – admission by donation.

“On May 14th, British Columbians will go to the polls and choose who they want to represent them in the legislature. But, for the next four years, most of those MLAs will only represent the wishes of their party leaders.
A new video documentary by Webster Award-winning investigative journalist Sean Holman reveals why, exposing the secretive system of party discipline that stops MLAs from voting their conscience or for their constituents”
Now,many of you already know that is how it really works for most political parties… but I’m willing to wager that even more of you did not. Is your MLA really representing you and your community… or another agenda all together?
Now, I am a little curious as to how many of you think your MLA should have the right to vote freely, rather than as the party directs, so watch this trailer, and then if you like, vote at the poll below it. I spoke with Sean last night, and he believed so strongly that this documentary, this story, needed to be told, that he financed the entire project himself at great personal expense. He’s set up a donation page to help offset the costs of the project and if you think you would like to be a part of it, check out this page http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/whipped
