The most challenging election of modern times lies ahead, but the main parties are not spelling out what their policies mean to voters
Everyone seems to agree that we are heading for one of the least predictable general elections of modern times (although that seems to stop few pundits trying to call it). But are we also heading for one of the least democratic?
Democracy is a lot more than merely voting every four or five years. It involves many things, not least that the parties standing for election give us a reasonably clear idea of what our choices are. On this front, things do not look good.
