The structure of British democracy is a real problem for the left, because it is structurally misaligned to several key tenets of their underlying ideology.
    He's not wrong.

    Both the major parties have spent so long trying to be all things to all people that they inevitably end up with either a leader who heavily appeals to one faction but puts the others off, or you get a compromise candidate who everyone can sort of live with. A natural consequence of FPTP winner takes all politics.

    But knowing that German has gendered nouns is literally primary school level knowledge.
