parliment democracy for the elite From billionaires tycoons to corporations

Post by Admin on Sat Mar 31, 2018 12:17 pm

For all intents and purposes, the UK does appear to be a democracy. There are periodic elections in which every adult can vote, a representative parliament, and freedom of speech. But the reality is not only very different but actually frightening.

From billionaire tycoons to corporations with vested interests, elite influence has long compromised British democracy. The tentacles of the rich and powerful creep into Number 10 in the form of political party donations, cronyism and media influence.

A report in 2012 on British democracy found that it was “in terminal decline.” And since then, many political commentators have said that it is in “crisis.” But despite this bleak picture, there is hope.
