British Civility and the Lack Thereof

From @cole007:

This is perhaps the problem of party politics, where tribalism, allegiance and blind loyalty become the driving force of conversation; centralised dogma determining localised decision making and messaging rather than debate, dialogue and legitimate representation. (via The problem with Corybynism)

The lack of civility in British civics is perhaps the most glaring symptom of a society that is fractured. This is the underlying problem; we can’t even begin to work together to maintain and improve vital public services (thus better securing the lives of our most vulnerable citizens) if we can’t even agree to simply talk to one another.
