@metpoliceuk told us last week that the number of threats to MPs has gone up by 126% from last year.
It is a pretty depressing twitterfeed, so I recommend you investigate it only if you don’t believe me!
Is the law around free speech and protest working?
Of course when the government chooses not to look after the electorate (aka its citizens) then these problems are, I suggest, bound to happen.
Remarkably to me too many MP’s are unaware of their electorate, or at least of their electorate’s circumstances.
Not only is neoliberalism in the dock but also this disastrous statistic is an indication of a broken democracy – because really our elections are ineffective – thay do not actually reflect the people’s views.
We desperately need, I suggest, some form of proportional representation, which is an idea that Westminster likes to suggest and implement for others – even as near as Scotland – but never for itself…
