Election: Collective Therapy?

The UK Parliament appears impotent or completely dysfunctional, and while there’s an element of truth to these points of view we’re seeing the consequences of a minority government. Parliament, or “the system”, isn’t broken no matter what the politicians or commentators might say.

There’s been reluctant agreement among all political parties that politicians must submit themselves to the will of the people in a December election. We’re heading into an election where there’s no real appetite for it and not within living memory has the outcome, or outcomes, been more in doubt. Perhaps this will be an election where the nation vents it’s collective frustration. Every sitting MP in the land will be wondering if they’ll be unemployed by Christmas.So this is a form of collective therapy with a very uncertain outcome.
