The New Westminster Model: The shift of political power
The Palace of Westminster is falling down! It is in need of serious repairs, which is estimated to take five years and 3 billion pounds to tax payers. The projects unveils the grim reality of the gradual shift of political power to corporations, the utmost exploitation, hierarchical grimness and ruthless lust for power, wealth and status.
The New Westminster celebrates a business ontology in which it is seen obvious that the government too should be run as a business. The Conservatives winning a majority justifies the pro-business nature which governs us today.
Questioning the serious threat and credibility of representative democracy when there are many mechanisms to construct public opinions and consensus. When there are strategic sites for powers to manipulate and wholly reinvent ideas. The project does not try to provide a solution to such a complex issue. However to identify its core characteristic to provide a platform of discussion. However grim the reality must be, inevitably it implies a political vision and there is importance and value in recognizing the issue. Until we re-engage with the problem, only then can we re-establish a new political form.
