It won't be worse. The more obvious corruption will be gone & the tone will change. Starmer will do whatever he's allowed to do by the businesses he's been vigourously sucking up to for most of this year, & the banks.the public gets what the public wants, I agree in large with what you are saying however, I believe it will become worse under Labour and Starmer. Not because of left versus right but because "we" the people have elected incompetent politicians.
As always the consensus is somewhere in the middle amongst the pejoratives being hurled. As for history books that has been slowly eradicated in our educational system and our MSM outlets.
Starmer is essentially a modern Labour version of John Major. A bland, forgettable nothing with no real ideas. If he did have any ideas they'd soon be vetoed by the press & big business anyway so probably safer for him to not have any. Empty rhetoric wins elections these days, not policy.
The whole democracy problem has one solution & one only, PR. Thats always been the case.
The UK & the US suffer from the same problem, our voting systems are perfectly viable for the 19th century.
Every country in Europe uses some sort of PR & as a result there ends up being much more compromise & discussion in their domestic politics. It's of course not perfect but a hell of a lot better than the embarassing ****wittery of PMQs which functions as a perrenial national embarrassment on a weekly basis.
I've seen "landslide" election victories for Thatcher, Blair & Johnson in my lifetime. None of which saw the winning party get anywhere close to even 50% of the vote. To call that a landslide perfectly demonstates how ****ed up the system really is.
45% of the vote buys you a 75+ seat majority which absolutely guarantees that you can do whatever the **** you want for 5 years & renders opposition essentially worthless. You can't call that democracy.
( the only exception to the above of course, is a god level incompetent like Johnson. Literally nobody else in UK political history could have ****ed an unassailable majority in the way he did. It's actually lost on most people just how remarkable that is. History will never tire of talking about it)
The usual " traditionalists " (i.e. morons) who always harp on about how " oooooh it's the way we do things, we don't want to copy bloody foreigners " can **** right off.
We actually ALREADY use PR. All the devolved assemblies use some form of it. It's only Westminster & English local elections that still use FPTP. As always, England is the ****ing problem.
Of course, the reason it won't happen is the same as always. Labour & the Tories won't back it as they're happy to stay swapping around forever while the country goes to hell.
I don't claim it as a cure all. But it'd be a step in the right direction. Some people might even end up with their votes actually mattering for the first time in generations.
