Subject: Britain a Laughing Stock in Europe

Dear Mr Drax

It is very sad that according to the Guardian ( https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jun/24/brexit-europe-laughing-britain-unstable-government ) Britain is now a laughing stock in Europe. First Past the Post has not delivered strong and stable government recently.

The article points out that under a proportional system ‘balanced’ parliaments (to use a less emotive term than ‘hung’) will be more likely, but once politicians have  learned to live with this they might be more likely to face the challenges faced by this country as grown ups rather than as a crowd of jeering schoolboys and school girls. Political leaders might be persuaded to show a modicum of humility and start listening.

You may wish to reflect on this. Just to remind you that we are holding a meeting at the United Church, Dorchester on Tuesday to discuss this (see attached). It would be good to see some Conservatives there.

yours sincerely

David Smith, 9 Old Station Road, Weymouth, DT3 5NQ, tel: 01305 815965
