Needed: Structural Reforms for Governing the United Kingdom

Patrick Barbour

The Taxpayers Alliance, London, U.K.

The author argues that the current system of government in the United Kingdom is failing because of structural flaws that operate regardless of which party is in power. In a provocative article that is centered on facts rather than on ideological discussion, he makes his case as to how the current system of government is failing, and explores the fundamental causes of the failure and the principles that he believes will need to apply in any reform.
