What Choice?

Gerald Warner once again hits the proverbial nail on the head with his latest post when he writes: "Expanding the election from a two-party to a three-party contest has brought no increase in choice. That suggests this election may be a staging post to an electoral revolution that, next time we go to the polls, will promote the minor parties to major contention."

In repeating Nigel Farage's line about the electorate's inability to put a cigarette paper between them, Gerald Warner echoes the plaintive cry of the electorate - "what choice?" By 'freezing' out any participation by the SNP, Plaid Cymru and UKIP the Lib/Lab/Con have ensured that their censorial hold on the lack of political choice remains.

It is this lack of choice that the Lib/Lab/Con have managed to impose on the electorate that has caused the disinterest in politics. Why take an interest when there is no choice?
