How can Democracy in Britain be ImprovedWatch
Just needed some help, I will very much appreciate it
So, I've signed up for this project, I'm in year 12
And this project requires me to do university style work, and your essays get marked and awarded a 1st, 2.1 or 2.2 or 3rd or fail
And thing is I'm from a A level Science Background and don't really know much about government and politics
I was given a bit of guidance in my handbook, but I think I'd need someone (if willing) to help me out
Here's what it says in the handbook
Firstly it says in the introduction which should be 400 words
-why is this essay question important to answer
-the first problem I have identified with British democracy is..
-another problem or criticism of British democracy is..
-a possible Solution to these problems to improve British democracy would be...
Main Body (400 words)
- one important problem or criticism of British democracy would be..
- the reason this is a problem for democracy in the UK is..
-Some evidence that this is a problem for democracy in the UK is..
And problem 2 also but in this I am supposed to include a counter argument
And then explain which of the two criticisms is more important to solve
How would you introduce the solutions
Any help will be appreciated thank you for reading all of that
If in doubt, turn to CGP Grey's Youtube channel, which should explain everything in considerably more detail then myself.

i just finished 2 year a level in politics and i'm studying politics and international relations at uni
- Downs (1957) who claimed (based on rational choice theory) that a huge part of what politicians/political parties did was seeking and securing office and votes.
- Storm (1990) added to this that they only seek office office as long as its advantageous.
Both are v. well respected political scientists with theories that have been cited a huge number of times. These ideas are relevant to this scenario because the UK is a country in which the will of the parliament is supreme and we have no codified constitution or supreme court. Therefore, political parties are the actors who 'safeguard' democracy and guarantee a democratic mandate; but this may interfere with their goal of seeking votes/office which - if they are rational actors - will be their priority.
