Democracy is a complicated ideology to grasp not least because it is a rather personal thing, it means things to different people. As a result of this it has transpired to take many different forms.
American Democracy is much more engaging to the electorate; elections for both houses of Congress and a sort of election for the President. Representatives campaign so much more aggressively than their British counterparts.
Is focusing your campaign on the premise that your vote will make Theresa May more powerful as a politician democratic? It all has a whiff of authoritarianism about it if you ask me.
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.
Republican or Democrat? Done. That’s what is on offer in American elections, the self-proclaimed nation of ultimate democracy and a beacon of glory for all aspiring democracies.
The final process of the Article 50 journey is the subsequent deal that is negotiated and if a proper and suitable democratic mandate is not given, then frankly, the British people have been conned.
The UK is made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Only two of those countries, England and Wales, voted to leave the EU. Ergo the UK did not vote to leave the EU.
