UK Election Winter 2019 – why is it so hard for good people to get elected?

From way over here in Australia it appears that in Johnson you have an English version of Trump and, if elected, the UK will slide further down the road of increasing inequality, depleted social services and environmental decay.

On the other hand, Labour have promised to nationalise a section of British Telecom by offering free broadband, to nationalise water and to offer workers share bonuses in profit making companies that they work for. They are the only social democratic party in the world talking about re-distributing wealth back to workers by nationalisation.

Results
Conservative win with a 80 seat majority

This is a terrible result for democracy!
