I HAVE frequently complained that our electoral system allows a minority of the electorate (usually 35–40 per cent) to decide which party will govern our country.

However, when 0.1 per cent, the members of the Conservative Party, can choose a new Prime Minister and Government, this is going too far.

Our new Government ought to seek a mandate, particularly for their Brexit policy, by holding a general election.

Frankly I don’t think anyone can predict what the result would be, and another hung Parliament is a distinct possibility.

However, at least this would allow the electorate to express their views by actual votes, rather than having to listen to people telling us what they think our country wants.
