Using your own knowledge and the extract, consider why Political Parties threaten democracy (10 marks)
“In this sense, it is important to look at the growth of populism – in its many forms - as both a threat and a corrective to liberal democracy. The threat comes through the proliferation (rapid increase) of corrosive political debates on issues such as immigration, Europe and welfare, putting pressure on mainstream political parties to react and move in line with their discourse. The corrective comes in seeing the rise of populism as a warning signal to parties and governments to revisit their approaches to governance and representation – as well as reconsidering their political and economic offers along the left-right axis.”
