Dictatorship By The Minority
I'm sure you will already know this, but further to recent posts, and just for my own interest, I've looked out the voting figures for general elections since WW2.
The blunt truth is that no post-War government has ever had majority support.
Not the famous 1945 landslide Labour government.
Not Thatcher at the height of her power.
Not A-New-Day-Has-Dawned-Has-It-Not Bliar.
Not a single one.
And yet we have somehow conferred on all of them the powers of that famous elected dictatorship - even the current shower, who have less popular support than any of their predecessors.
