In this talking in English lesson we cover the British 2019 general election, and why this election is different. Along the way we explain how elections work in the UK and how things are changing because of the Brexit referendum result. So an interesting opportunity to dust off vocabulary specific to elections and democracy, great for conversational English practice. ✔️[THIS WEEKS LINK] ✔️Last Article: ✔️Article Group: Talking English Democracies around the world are always changing, it is the nature of democracy to change, usually slowly and predictably. Recently, the people in the US, UK rejected the status quo and are saying no too more of the same governance and are demanding a faster pace of change. This has led to a lot of arguments and polarisation of views which has led to the policy decision making in both the UK and the US slowing to a halt. Unfortunately, doing nothing for years is no-way to run a country, and these countries need to break the gridlock. So in it seems in the US they started an impeachment process to force change. In the UK they called a snap general election to break the standoff. Who knows where this will lead us?
