  • This would appear to be a good illustration of the shortcomings of a ruling party with no viable opposition , it breeds a sense of invincibility ( we know best and will dictate to you lesser beings ) – it is a natural / selfish human trait.
    History has shown, time and time again, that an omnipotent power will go too
    far and eventually implode. The nearest example being the Blair / Brown / Mandleson experiment which nearly bankrupted the country with it’s foolhardy
