Britain poised for authoritarianism

While it is never a idea to take any survey too literally especially when looking at the exact percentages, this one does seem to raise a genuine concern. Parliament has certainly not covered itself in glory for a long time and, while you might pick out different things depending on which you side of the referendum you choose, there are plenty of things that are problematical. Trump, whatever your view of him, is not a eule-follower and there is no reason at all the UK could not end up with someone in power even less concerned with the rules. Brexit is certainly a mechanism that could be exploited to assist them.
