Votes are vital to break the three-party system

From: D Harrop, Malton Street, Sheffield.

THE electoral system we have in England admits the possibility of innumerable parties of diverse viewpoints, standing candidates at elections for examination by the electorate. The advent of the Ukip widens the field to a degree, and yet to all intents and purposes, we are and remain a three party system.

A longstanding myth has it that the three main parties we have offer viable options to the electorate, on what very many people perceive to be the deeply serious and in fact nation-threatening issues of the day.

Yet that would seem not to be the case; the three principle parliamentary parties which legislate for this country and which guarantee the autonomy of our legal system and by extension of the country, operate within the strict guidelines and injunctions imposed by the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

The rules of that particular legislature are to aim at the creation of a global economic hegemony incorporating at the least, all of the formerly autonomous governments within the European region: this includes the total powers and the British Government; in other words, the government of our country England.

Within the party political system we have, no decision made by any majority of the electorate has any effect. They all operate within the aegis of the European government to promote a unitary globalised economy. The only “centre ground party which people can really feel they belong to”, as envisaged by George Appleby in his several letters to this paper, would of necessity be one which fought for its own immediate and direct national interests.

There are such parties, but to be active and effective they require that people vote for them in numbers and even join them.
