In praise of democracy

Britain still hasn’t got a new government.

Number 10 Downing Street may have a squatter; negotiations about who will rule may be confused and protracted and the markets may not be happy about that.

But the people are going about their business unconcerned.

No riots, no mayhem, no bloodshed.

In true democracies people accept the will of the people, even when that will is unclear.

    Actually, the way Britain is ticking along nicely without knowing who is governing it prompts the thought that maybe we don’t actually need a government. Indeed, maybe we would be better off without one. But don’t let the good people of Eketahuna North know what Alf is thinking, lest they get the idea they needn’t bother voting in future.

    Alf, I’m sure the good people of Ekatahuna recognise the value of their MP.

    It’s demonstrating the value of the democratic institutions in the UK. It’s a robust democracy.
