The government in the UK is a reeking mess because of the very Parliamentary system that underpins their form of democracy and has done for centuries.
Worse, it is the very same system adopted by Australia, Canada, New Zealand and other nations. And these countries should be concerned as they watch the UK's Parliament destroy the foundations of the democracy it is supposed to uphold.
Here's how this mess unfolded.
The UK Prime Minister, David Cameron, in response to many calls for the UK to get out of the European Union, held a referendum asking for the people's decision on the issue.
After much campaigning from both sides, during which it was made clear that a "Leave" decision would separate the UK from the EU WITH NO AGREEMENT OR DEAL if the "Yes" vote prevailed, the people voted to leave.
Cameron, having championed the "Remain" argument, resigned.
What did his Tory party do? They replaced him with ANOTHER campaigner to remain in the EU. In other words, they selected a "Remainer" to spearhead the departure.
Theresa May was an appalling failure who tried to negotiate a departure that was, in effect, a deal to remain in all but name only.
But in the meantime, Parliament passed a law which gave the House (not the government) the final say. So, we may well ask, what is the point of having a government?
Thus, May presented her deal to Parliament three times and was rejected, because the PARLIAMENT is dominated by REMAINERS. In other words, Parliament is ignoring the will of the people in lieu of the individual opinions of the MP's.
This is exactly why democracy is dead.
So, May quits and finally the Tories appoint a Leaver as their PM who has committed to leaving by the deadline set by the EU, deal or no deal...as was proposed in the original referendum.
Now Parliament are trying to pass a Bill to prevent that. Tory MP's have joined the other side to enact the Bill. Johnson then threatens to call a general election, but again Parliament blocks THAT.
Parliamentary democracy is dead. We are witnessing it's death throes. And we in countries that duplicated the UK system should indeed be worried.
We are next.
I actually had hope when Boris Johnson became leader of the Conservative Party. He is trying, but the entire system in Britain and abroad is against the British people.
