The Democratic Dictatorship

This is a short article, a brief discussion in relation to the British Parliament with William Pitt the Younger (28 May 1759 – 23 January 1806). It was Pitt, who as the Prime Minister of Britain, oversaw the resurgence of Great Britain as a naval power to vanquish the hopes and aspirations of a French Empire under the French Emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte.

The discussion is set in the year 2020 and it offers the argument, perhaps even the conclusion, that the elected government of Britain is a democratic dictatorship.

The first English Parliament came into being in 1215 after the signing of the Magna Carta. The first British Parliament came into being in the year 1707 after the merger of the Kingdom of Scotland with the Kingdom of England.

In the final analysis, and if it is the case that democracy in the true sense of the word does not exist, then Britain does not stand alone in the world. Many countries, especially in the west, including the United States of America, have copied and mirrored the democratic elected process of the Government of Britain. Of course many of those countries, unlike Britain, no longer have a King or Queen and are recognised as Republics with a President as their Head of State.
