How does an ordinary individual climb to the top of one of Britain’s two main political parties? Look at the Conservative and Labour Party of today, cast your mind back over their recent leaders, and then place yourself in the shoes of any young person deciding that they would wish to devote their lives to climbing to the top of such thoroughly despicable organisations.
Louis XIV in France is a good example of an absolute monarch. At least there was a chance his successor might have proved an improvement. In the two party system as operated in Britain today, only the most venal low lives have any chance of making it to the top of the two main political parties, where being all things to all men, changing views depending upon your audience are but two of the essential character requirements.
Once in power, putting aside the EU aspect for once, the leader of a majority party in the Westminster Parliament, can pretty well act as he/she wishes, because the party dependent dummies, sitting alongside and behind him, have zero independence of mind or action, as had they ever enjoyed such attributes, they would not have demeaned themselves in the first place, by becoming a mere cog in their party machine!
Monarchy at least provides a fighting chance somebody decent might come along once in a while, the whipped two party system ensures that is an impossibility.
The Conservative and Labour Cabinet Ministers of recent years provide several splendid examples of just how ghastly our system of governance has become. The handing of our independence and right to self-governance to foreigners further proves the point!
