No such thing as our demo­cratic so­ci­ety

Gloucestershire Echo - - LETTERS & OPINION - Alan Kultschar Tuf­fley

✒ I RE­FER to the let­ter by Dr. Richard House in the Echo (July 25) where he states that the right-wing me­dia’s dis­grace­ful cho­sen approach to de­stroy Jeremy Cor­byn and based on anti-semitism is­sues as an out­rage in a demo­cratic so­ci­ety.

What demo­cratic so­ci­ety? Nor­mally, I would agree with him, ex­cept for the fact that Par­lia­ment in three years has not recog­nised the demo­cratic vote of the peo­ple to leave the EU.

In ad­di­tion, Jeremy Cor­byn him­self on July 25 stated on tele­vi­sion: “The vote we need is the vote of the peo­ple and re­ject Brexit.”

This is also the po­si­tion of Jo Swin­son, the new leader of the Lib­eral Democrats.

May I pro­pose that in fu­ture all MPS be re­quired to ac­cept a Sworn Demo­cratic Oath prior to tak­ing their seat in Par­lia­ment for them to un­der­stand the mean­ing of democ­racy?
