I see the coming change as restoration of democracy. In England a majority of people have opposed immigration, opposed EU membership and expansion,
supported Electoral reform, supported the death penalty against e.g. child killers, opposed e.g. prisoners being fed meat or given TV's.
But our two party Con-Lab state has always found a way to get through elections without addressing these democratic concerns. But we now face change
because a growing number of people, are beginning to think of ourselves as a e.g. "dysfunctional democracy".
That CAN'T be allowed to continue, because these conditions do (in themselves) enable the worst kinds of revolution (as can be seen in many other
Once the people "wake up" they become a lot less opposed to e.g. violent revolution-military coup. I.e. the system is only stable, as long as the
vast majority of people believe it is also "fair" (obviously not the same as being what they want) but its associating not getting what most people
want, with how our system functions, that has all the political dynamite.
So the Liberal hold on power will either have to give way, or they will need to make some serious compromises. Compared to the current political
climate, any thoughts of the restoration of greater democratic representation feels (to me) much like revolution!
