In the words of every petulant child to their parent, “you just don’t get it.” When it boils down to it, are the generations really that different?

  • Features Of The Westminster Model

    In the last century, this has been a re-occurring trait, with coalition governments being very rare.

    As predicted, our data reinforces findings of Riemann et al., (1993), Van Hiel et al., (2000), Jost et al., (2009) and Lee et al., (2010) that Openness is relevant in predicting political ideology.

    Jean-Louis de Lolme (1784) claim the complete opposite. de Lolme believes that the elected parliament pushes the will of the people who voted for the members to be there. Although the Parliament Acts of 1911 and 1949 (Legislation.gov.uk, 2015) seem to support de Lolme’s assertion in that they push forward the views of the democratically elected House of Commons over the House of Lords that by no means suggests it is the absolute will of the people. If that was the case then the House of Lords…
