THE PARTY SYSTEM

For over 150 years Britain's system of parliamentary democracy has been based on organized political parties competing to form governments. The system depends on the existence of at least two parties in the House of Commons, each of which is capable of forming a government. Any organization wishing to put up candidates at a relevant election must be registered as a political party with the Electoral Commission. Voting is by secret ballot.

Most candidates in elections and almost all winning candidates belong to one or other of main political parties. Candidates who are members of smaller political parties, or who do not belong to any party, may also stand. Since the Second World War the great majority of MPs have belonged to either the Conservative or the Labour party.

The leader of the party that wins most seats at a general election is by convention invited by the Monarch to form a government. He or she becomes Prime Minister and chooses the ministers who will together form the Government.

Group A

Youth Culture

A. Hippies

In the 1960s and 1970s a hippy was a person who opposed the normal standards of society. Hippies wore unusual clothes. Girls, for example, often wore Indian-style silk dresses and both men and women usually had long hair. They lived in groups together, often in quiet places in the countryside. Hippies believed in peace. A lot of hippies in the US and Europe went on marches toprotest against the Vietnam War. When the hippy movement started in the US, especially in California, young people showed their peaceful feelings by wearing flowers in their hair. For this reason, they were also called flower people or flower children. Hippies listened to rock music. They enjoyed the songs of Bob Dylan and it was at this time that the Beatles wrote songs like 'Give Peace a Chance' and 'All You Need is Love'.

B. Punks

In the mid 1970s, times were hard. Unemployment was growing higher and higher, especially amongst the young , and many teenagers felt that society was to blame. A youth culture started up which expressed these negative feelings punk. Punk rock tried to shock people, while the hippies were talking about love and peace, punks were full of hate.

They thought normal pop music was boring and listened to bands like the Sex Pistols. Punks chose clothes that their parents hated. They wore ripped T shirts, Doc Marten boots and leather jackets, and often had brightly coloured spiked hair.

Yuppies - An American Stereotype

The word yuppies, young urban professionals, brings to mind two earlier stereotypes hippies and preppies. Hippies were those young people in the 1960s who believed in love, peace, and spiritual things rather than material things. Preppies are children from rich, influential families who go to exclusive preparatory (prep) schools. These groups are alike in some ways and very different in other ways.

Yuppies, preppies, and hippies have many of the same characteristics. One characteristic of all three groups is youth members are usually under thirty years old. Yuppies and hippies share another characteristic a belief in freedom and human potential.

Both groups are also fascinated with the self. Yuppies and preppies share characteristics, too. Both believe that money, power, and profession is more important than anything else in life. Both yuppies and preppies love competition and enjoy the game of keeping up with the Joneses.

There are also important differences among hippies, preppies, and yuppies,, Hippies believed that property was for everyone to share; yuppies believe property is for investment money should earn more money. Hippies believed in spiritual things; yuppies believe in material things. As for yuppies and preppies, yuppies believe that anyone who works hard can earn money and have the better things in life nicer clothes, faster cars, etc. Preppies, however, get their money and often their possessions from their families rather than from hard work. They prefer to save the money they earn and leave it for their children and grandchildren.
