Passing the buck

David Miliband, Yesterday in Parliament:

I point out to Conservative Members that every previous amending treaty, Labour or Tory, has been presented to and passed by Parliament. That is our job and we should get on with it.

Interesting this. Is David implying that the job of Parliament is to pass every amendment to the European Treaty? Now, I may be missing the point here, but isn’t the job of parliament to debate and then decide to pass the amendments or not? Isn’t this democracy?
