UK Politics


UK PoliticsThe UK Politics is an interesting subject. They need electrical companies to assist in their homes and offices. It is a society where a major party is in power. And there are many smaller parties, and sometimes even coalitions of minor parties which can cause some major problems for the ruling party. But at times, it seems that UK Politics is not really all that serious. Especially, when there is a general election.

It does not seem to matter to the political pundits or politicians, what is the real picture on the ground. For them, the only reality that matters is who holds power. They seem to have forgotten the concept of the ‘democratic revolution’ and they have lost sight of what politics was all about. In the old times, politics was considered a way of leading the country. With a strong party in power, things would get done and change.

Life was not so different back then. There were institutions of politics in every town and city in the UK. And the parties did not rule the country, as they do now. The party leadership and the elected officials form the government; not the people by majority vote.

However, we see these institutions breaking down. We also see the number of parties and individuals grow. This is because, people no longer live in a society where they can rely solely on the party to solve their problems. The fact that more people are starting to form coalitions and getting behind particular political parties tells us something.

Moreover, it shows that the parties have lost their belief in working for the benefit of the people as a whole. Their main purpose has become to ‘win’ the next election. Parties generally elect their candidates from the list provided by the party. This list is whittled down from the list of candidates that qualified for an election in the constituency.

Some of the coalitions that developed are usually made up of the junior party leader (usually the one who are at the bottom of the party pyramid), the deputy leader and then the leader of the main political party. Sometimes there are some coalitions that do not have any leaders at all. They will just be ‘centre parties’. The coalitions that do not have leaders often end up with a cabinet that does not control the bureaucracy properly and this leads to inefficiency.

Many political pundits in the UK argue that the UK is moving towards Plationalist socialism and away from capitalism. But that is not entirely true. Although there are many places in the UK that have ‘socialist’ policies, they are not entirely ruled by a socialist party. In fact there are parts of the country that elect a Christian Unionist MP. All the major parties have their own ideologies, but they do not follow them all.

It seems that all political parties are moving towards the extreme left or right, and it is too bad. In the end, the voters do not get their say, and there is a big imbalance of power between the various parties. Without contest there will be less representation for the minor parties and the radical fringe. Without enough contest there will be no change. I would urge all UK citizens to vote for more politicians, so that representation can be balanced out and democracy can flourish once again.

It is not my job to advise you which way to vote, my job is to help you understand how the system works. When considering which party is likely to lead the country, first look at who governs in the country, or that political party. The last two months of a hung parliament, where there is an Independent Government may be the best time to form a new government. This will give the party an opportunity to govern effectively. Once the New Election is due, then the question becomes, can the party win again?

There is an interesting article in the Daily Mail which states that David Cameron has made the mistake of changing his mind about the EU. Why has he done this? Has he changed his mind because he realised that the public does not want to see the UK become a country that is governed by a “crass elitist”? No doubt, many people are disillusioned with the way the EU operates, but Mr. Cameron should know better. He needs to stand firm and show the public that he is committed to Europe, but that he has also looked outside the box and understands that a strong UK Union is vital for Britain’s future.

The UK Politics and Business article are correct in saying that the polls suggest that the three main parties have a solid lead in the race to win at the next election. However, this is probably a mistake as opinion polls are rarely right. They are also widely regarded as being the most unreliable way of predicting election results. This is because no two opinion polls are ever the same.

These days, the latest events in UK politics are connected to Brexit, which is a major structural change in UK politics and how people see different segments of society. Even food policy is under revision. Although many people see this as a good opportunity for changes to the better, this could easily go wrong if not managed carefully.

For almost fifty years, the UK’s food policy and system – comprising the transport, production of food, manufacturing, and so on – has been linked to the UK membership of the European Union. The entire UK is well known for its world-class catering companies which can be compared to the best catering companies in Miami, which have always been at the top of the list. Now you see and understand how important Brexit is to all segments of society and the entire UK economy.

Britain has been a full member of the EU since 1973. But what’s going on, what happened with relationship between the EU and the UK? It all started with a series of crises that have shaken the UK confidence in the EU.

The referendum was held on 23 June 2016 when people decided that the UK should leave the European Union. The voting ratio was: 51.9 percentage voted to leave while 48.1 percentage voted to stay.

And that’s how we have a new world – BREXIT. Which is actually a shorter way when we wanna say that the UK is leaving the EU.

But what does all of this even mean and how it will affect people and the entire society?

By definition, the EU is a family or let’s call it a special club of 28 European countries. Each of them has to pay if they want to stay a regular member, and in return for that, they have access to special ways of working together

Here we talk about a being part of one big single market where EU members can trade with one another and their people can move from one country to another freely. It’s just like one huge country where we all live all together.

The European Union has its own rules, ideology, currency, laws, and parliament, but yet the UK is not using Euro. The basic idea of constituting the EU comes after WW2 with the belief that if the countries work diligently, all together, they will evade mistakes from history and there won’t be wars anymore.

The big part of people gave their vote to remain in the EU – 48 percentage, including former UK Prime Minister David Cameron. He felt that it is better to go with EU members than going alone. They claim that it is easier for the UK to sell products and so on to other EU members, which is actually good for the UK’s businesses and trade.

But what made more than half of people to vote to leave this so-called special club?

At first, the very idea of a single market was focused on improving, increasing trade between these countries, which should lead to lowering prices and creating jobs. BUT after a while, the EU Parliament bring on the table many new rules and restrictions that every single country of the EU has to follow and the UK start feeling they are losing control and power of its own laws and affairs.

To make a long story short, the truth is that the UK gives a large amount of money to the EU every year, that is a membership fee. And the vast majority of people think that they are getting nothing in return for these big amounts of money.

There is also one more concern between the UK citizens about people who are moving from poor, south countries to richer like they are. This has made people start worrying about the rule of free movement, which allows EU people to move between EU countries freely. This was actually a crucial problem for many people who voted.

The struggle and battle between the UK and the EU are still ongoing. All deadlines have been broken, and the end of the negotiations is not in sight, because many key issues are still unresolved, and it seems that they will remain so.

What will happen remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure, people voted not to stay in the EU.
