    Default Risk of a UK 'dictatorship', says Lord Neuberger

    The UK is danger of driving the UK down a “very slippery slope” towards “dictatorship” or “tyranny”, according to a former president of the supreme court.

    A FPTP democrat system meant for use where a few hundred thousand citizens reside says it all really.

    Nothing changes until that outdated system is replaced. The corrupt will not allow that, however.

    Voted with my feet. That does not mean I should give up caring about the family suffering under Tory rule, a party that hardly any bugger in Scotland voted for.

    Question. If Wales, Northern Ireland, & Scotland are devolved nations - what does that make England?

    I though we were already with version of capitalism that resembles neo-feudalism. What can be worse than this?
