Pick of our readers’ comments: Parties in lockstep


IN response to Kathy Gyngell: We salute the lockdown rebels – but the rest should be ashamed, cambridgeelephant wrote:

What this shows – again – is how aligned the political class really is.

Where is the actual – true – real – opposition ?

The answer is that it is almost completely absent at Westminster. It’s the British people who provide the non-parliamentary real opposition, but there’s only so much they can do. And nothing they can do legislatively.

Whilst the British people persist with the near-worthless duopoly of Con/Lab, this state of affairs will continue. And most of those 55 are still ‘Tories’ first and foremost and will revert to type.

Until we, the British people, break the two-party duopoly, we are doomed to see this play out again and again.
