Do you feel current party political systems are truly democratic?


Party political systems are dominant in nearly all western democracies but does the limit of choosing from a small selection of parties represent true democracy or is it contrived to feel democratic while robbing the public of any real choice?

    In the UK we only get centre-right and all the parties just play in around in that area. To me democracy is about choice and party political systems prevent genuine choice.

    But do we have genuine choice? In the UK we have three main parties and all of them share core policy values, in the US there are differences between Democrats and Republicans but it is a binary position. Democracy requires choice and opportunity IMO
