Let's consign one-party rule to the past
Would it not be better if one-party rule in the UK was consigned to a bygone era? This would be a healthy outcome.
As we live in a globalised world, challenges are increasingly becoming intertwined, with ever-shrinking political and cultural hegemony. Solutions lie outside the purview of one major party.
The UK cannot withstand any internal wrangling, as it faces enormous challenges - from terrorism to financial austerity, greenhouse gas emissions to health, income and gender inequities.
The country should punch above its weight to combat political, social and economic marginalisation and build a healthier economy, a cleaner environment and a fairer society, where the youth, the asylum seekers, those with disabilities, the refugees, the impoverished and the most vulnerable have a say in running their affairs.
