In an extraordinary development in Britain today, the
House of Commons voted down the Prime Minister’s call for immediate elections to resolve the escalating Brexit crisis.
It would appear that the ‘house of the people’
is too afraid of the people to face a direct and immediate election over the issue.
This pusillanimous decision by the so-called representatives of the people amply illustrates the disconnection
between Britain’s political class and the aspirations and common sense of ordinary and decent people in that sad country.
Moreover, this decision and this disconnect amply highlights
the poverty of today’s ‘liberal-democracy’.
