Is the UK a democracy or dictatorship?

127 comments  Add a comment

Is democracy a system we really need anymore?  For a long time now, our parliamentary politicians have become steadily more useless, steadily more corrupt and greedy.  The wishes of the public are continually ignored and while we seethe in frustration, our politicians award themselves handsome pay increases, inflated pensions and peerages to ensure they are suckling at the political cash cow until the day they die.

The wishes of the public are continually ignored

We allegedly live in a democracy, yet in truth; a vast majority of the voters in this country either failed to vote, or voted for a party other than New Labour in the last general election.

We are supposed to have a secret vote, but this isnt true, everyone has a unique poll number and that number is logged on a vast database so parties can target potential votes and assistance the next time round.

Parliament buildings, Westminster But look at the alternative:

Dictatorship: A dictator will, against the will of the people enact laws to suit their own ends.

Err! HELLO!!

A dictator will pass statute law that decreases the rights of the people with free speech, freedom of movement and freedom of thought.

Err! HELLO!!

A dictator will ensure that those close party members or financial backers will receive unearned rewards.

Err! HELLO!

The incumbent politicians of this and previous parliaments have continuously eroded the democratic principles to such an extent; we can scarcely recognise the country that our forefathers fought two world wars for.

If were going to be honest, lets just drop the pretence and get ourselves a dictator, any flavour will do, but at least well know what weve got.

Brexit Rules

Brexit Rules

I find it very strange that the EU has allowed the UK to participate in the EU elections knowing that the Brexit party MP's army will be landing in their camp to kick the crap out of them.

"Nigel Farage facing investigation by EU authorities over lavish gifts from millionaire tycoon"

This shows how terrified the EU is over The Brexit Party that will soon be in their camp in numbers. And they should be because Nigel F is showing people how corrupt the EU is. Nigel Farage speaks out loud what the British people want to say but are not being listened to.

Labour pledges £10 minimum wage for under-18s

Desperate attempt to win support for a dying party. What will be the Tories counter-response, something as ludacris I suspect. The political two party system in the UK is now showing the rest of the world that the lunatics are in charge of the asylum.

British politics, ever heard of the winky-wanky bird ? it flies around in circles until it disappeares up it's own asshole. Torys and Labour, enjoy your own colons.

yes we are under a dictatorship. transgender people dictate that we should believe that they were born in the wrong body. they dictate that any partners they have should not have the right to know about their original gender. the political correct police dictate that we should only have opinions that are the same as theirs. the young dictate that their views are mare important than their elders.

if i am not mistaken we already are, we vote but our votes do not count anymore and laws get passed everyday without any information or reason apart from benefiting who sets them most lily due to making more money.

Nothing the government do anymore benefit the people and usually come in a a new tax or influx of an old tax.

This article is very true, an elective dictator is the perfect terminology to describe the politics of the once Great Britain. Just look at the way in which fluoride is used as a mass medication to control the mind of the population by adding it to tap Water!

They can find billions of foreign aid and Cameron is proud of the fact that he provides more aid than any other country, good at spending our taxes.

They do not care about normal working class people and never have

If cameron had his way when you reach retirement age on your birthday you would get a plain brown letter with a poison pill in it!
