nice topic dude!
my 2 pence ... they both have their up's and downs, at the end of the day its all a pretend democacy as it really doesnt matter who the mp's are, as
they dont seem to make that much actual decisions... thats a different topic though
.. back on topic.
two party politics is good for the way it makes it a very clear cut affair, vote one partry or vote for another, this also stops questionable parties
like bnp' being able to stand, as they have to join one of the 2 partys, or not be in one at all, this also leads to members in one of the two
parties having questionable beliefs, even though its not what the party stands for, which could and probably does create bad apples in the bunch.
the uk system is good as unlike 2 party politics, we have the chance to run as independants or as any party we please, this of course leads to partys
like the bnp being in existance, but luckly its not about just being a party, its about winning majoritys. The main thing is the uk system is alot
more democratic, as people can , if they truely feel they can make a difference stand on their own, not under the slogan of big party, and thats a
true freedom in my book..the freedom to at least try and make a difference that is.
both good for different reasons.
