British politics is broken

There’s such division in British politics right now. One Nation Tories have been side-lined or pushed out by the right-wing. Labour’s social democratic wing, which seeks to appeal to the middle ground of the generally moderate electorate, is fighting the socialists and vice-versa.

I don’t think there’s ever been a stronger case for proportional representation than the current situation, with a wide range of political parties. Two-party politics seems broken, with opinions sharply divided. In the meantime, ordinary people just want to get on with their lives with a reasonable standard of living, the means to put food on the table, pay their bills, and get health care when they need it. Not to mention a safe future for their children and grandchildren.
