Most people believe we in the UK live in a democracy – we don’t! Officially we operate as a Constitutional monarchy.
We actually live in an Elective Dictatorship; this can be proven by referring to the wording of the Parliament Act of 1911. The democratic process allows for a general election. If the party winning the election has a clear parliamentary majority it can (and does) convert to a dictatorship, it can do what it wants, including breaking any manifesto promises with absolute impunity. The only difference last time round is that it required a two-party coalition to achieve that majority. Prior to 1911 we had a tripartite system for passing laws, these were:
• The Monarch – with Royal Assent
• The House of Lords
• The House of Commons
This provided checks and safeguards, they have now gone, and government has total control. Except they only appear to have that control, power is really wielded behind the scenes by super-rich banking Oligarchs – we are really a plutocracy, some suggest a Kleptocracy. Our leaders are chosen for us and the 3 mainstream parties all follow the same agenda and orders. Changing a government is just like a Company changing its board of directors – the Company (Country) carries on in the same way.
Identical to democrats and republicans in the USA – no real choice. There is evidence to suggest the establishment plans to destroy the Liberal Democrat party (achieved at the May 7th 2015 election), their recent by-election and poll results suggest they are losing their support base rapidly. This may suit the PTB (Powers That Be) as then the UK would have only two major political parties, much easier to influence than three. The apparent rise in UKIP may be backfiring on them.
