Why don't we elect MPs by proportional representation? - BBC News
FPTP is no more fit for purpose in a diverse country like UK! two-party system is out-dated /// "Millions of voters feel they are unrepresented in parliament - whether it is because they live in one of hundreds of 'safe seats' across the country, or because they feel forced to 'hold their nose' and opt for a 'lesser evil' rather than the party they truly support." // rule by majority is not democratic! especially in environment where corporate lobby w vested interest can water down anything at will! see sugar tax, climate change, air pollution etc. // and not to forget the right win media lobby landscape - owning 70% of newspapers.

Why Theresa May is a true heir to Richard Nixon | Aditya Chakrabortty | Opinion | The Guardian
Trump wasn’t playing politics: he was prosecuting a culture war – and a culture war is anti-politics. [...] First came her speech about how “the country is coming together”, even while her political opponents were not. Her cheerleaders were in the press the next day, baying for “Blue murder” and for her to “Crush the saboteurs”. I watched all this from the US; and in the land where Democrats are now routinely labelled “treasonous” it all sounded eerily familiar: us v them; the people v Westminster; leavers v remainers. [...] “forged a public language that promised mastery of the strange new angers, anxieties, and resentments wracking the nation”. [...] Nixon appealed to the “silent majority”. [...] “less about a traditional left-right battle and more about identity and values” [<< Rentnerrepublik]

May is stealing Ed Miliband’s clothes – but no one’s shouting ‘Red Theresa’ | Abi Wilkinson | Opinion | The Guardian
‘Red Ed’ was denounced in the Tory press for his energy price cap. But don’t expect the prime minister to be challenged – this is an uneven playing field
