The past year of British politics has been a whirlwind of delusion, stupidity and general idiocy. The Tories and especially Theresa May, have lost all credibility and respect and really are not in a decent position to carry on.
A strong and resurgent Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn ran a fantastic campaign focused around truly progressive and forward-looking policies that really resonated with the electorate, especially the younger generations.

With so much media choice on offer this is surely only enhancing democracy and making the democratic system stronger. There can’t be any downsides to this, can there? Well, yes there are.

The choices available to the electorate are clear. The mainstream parties have polar opposite approaches and policies to what they feel is best for the country. Conflict politics is certainly alive and well.
