You could make the argument that a political system without opposition isn't actually democracy, it's a one party state.RB wrote:You just can't win. Remainers wanted a general election so they could try and derail brexit. Now they have one, they're whining because there's no opposition.
Corbyn's only real shot at this is getting in a coalition with the Lib Dems and maybe the Greens, and trying for a "we're going to cancel Brexit" manifesto. Anything else hands the country back to the Conservatives for five more years. Potentially with a supermajority.
Plus, if he does that and still loses, it's basically a discount second Brexit and the Leavers still win.
That said, I am also interested in how the Scots vote. If they go 100% SNP, they might very well go for a second IndyRef and win it. Alternatively, Sturgeon could actually lose some seats (not sure who to - they clearly don't like the Conservatives that much) and an independence isn't as cut and dried as it sounds.
