  • If also not that most of the people talking about this ‘attack on democracy’ are unnervingly silent on the real and material threats to democracy in the UK (such as it is) - removal of civil rights, banning of protest, clipping the power of the courts, gerrymandering, flooding the HOL with unelected yes men etc and so on.

  • threats to democracy

    My first draft of my comment I'd written corruptocracy instead of democracy.

    There's so much wrong with where we're headed, but listing all this when emotions are high due to the stabbing only opens up angry responses.

    Adversarial "Punch 'n Judy" style combined with a FPTP "Winner takes all" competition is the crux of the problem.

    Every vote needs to count, and our politicians need to stop the constant bickering.
