Why I, an architect, stood as a Brexit Party candidate in the election

Comment

Whatever you think of the LibDems, referring to them as the 'liberal anti-democrats' demonstrates a mindset that's taking democracy for granted without looking twice. A major cause of Britain being currently stuck with two main political parties both in the hands of people who deserve scant respect is surely the 'first past the post' version of democracy - so dear to the hearts of tories and socialists alike - that has resulted in the LibDems suffering from massive under-representation of the proportion of the electorate voting for them. And the version of democracy applied to the entire UK electorate in the Brexit referendum resulted in England controlling the outcome, rather than enabling the four parts of the U(?)K to have an equal say based on the preferences of their individual electorates. The colonial mindset is still there, under the surface.
