Two wolves and a lamb

LETTER

All my life I have believed in democracy, until this last election that is. The way in which this present government has been formed makes me feel very uneasy.

I recently read a quote that goes: “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to eat for lunch.” Given the present circumstances, this has a ring of truth about it.

I am in my twilight years, and until about nine years ago was a staunch Labour voter. Nowadays, I sit slightly right of centre.
