This is a blog on progressive issues – namely furthering democracy and civil liberties. There is a democratic deficit in our country that is entrenched in the way we vote, and how many votes it takes to elect certain MPs over others. There is a democratic deficit in the lack of voting on who represents us. There is a democratic deficit in our schools and hospitals, where the most disadvantaged of us are not given equal opportunities. At the crux of it, the posts on this page are arguments for democracy and a society with significant opportunities and civil liberties.
