Turning And Turning [Mar. 22nd, 2019|08:56 am]
Tony Grist
One thing that's become clear from the Brexit process is that our oppositional, two-party political system is no longer working for us. The ideologies we've carried over from the 20th century were appropriate to a civilisation in its industrial phase- and that's no longer who we are. Membership of the EU isn't an issue which divides us along the old lines of left and right. Neither is climate change. Neither is globalisation. I don't know what our democracy will look like after it emerges from its present state of confusion but if it's to survive it will have to change...

"And what rough beast...?" But who says it has to be rough, perhaps it will be gentle.

Agreed. Some form of PR is long overdue.

It would break the dominance of the two big parties- which is why they don't want it.
