How can that be remotely construed as democracy??
Correct and as I posted in other threads.
Our democratic system is good in theory. However with the advent of Party Politics it has been totally subverted.
The establishment has conditioned the electorate to only consider the mainstream parties (who are all really just Establishment parties). So people just bicker about Tory vs Labour vs Lib Dems but the reality is they are all the same, all serving the same unseen unelected masters.
The Party system has subverted our democracy as you highlight. Whoever you vote in has to abide by the wishes of the party leaders and the higher echelons. That is not democracy. It is fake democracy
We COULD all of us rid our country of that situation overnight.
If we ALL voted for independent candidates, who were not Con/Lab/Lib then we would in one fell swoop rid parliament of all Tory, Labour and Lib Dem seats.
It would be unheard of.
But that's how our democracy is supposed to operate.
We are supposed to vote for local people who will support their constituency and have their own mind.
Sadly the Establishment own and control all media channels and thus nobody can reach the millions of people to educate them and convince them to not vote for Con/Lab/Lib.
So every election we simply vote the establishment back in and thus they continue to mete out their agendas, which include destroying the sovereignty of this country and putting us into a dictatorship run effectively by Germany and France.
It is WW2 being conducted by stealth and skulduggery.
