So, you\’ve finally noticed:
Rowan Williams, the archbishop of Canterbury, has issued a broadside against the coalition government, claiming it is forcing through \”radical policies for which no one voted\”.
We live in a representative democracy.
This means that when we vote we vote for individuals. For specific people. Then we send them off to do that heavy ruling for us.
We do not vote for ideas, policies, the Prime Minister nor anything other than the name of the individual person on hte ballot paper.
It\’s entirely fine to decide that this isn\’t a good idea, that we should be voting in some other manner.
But a little odd for you at the age of 61 to only have just realised the political system you\’ve been living in all your life.
