Democratic centralism

 

Sir, – Surely the best example of democratic centralism in action in the world today can be found in Hong Kong, where Beijing tidies up lists of candidates, agendas of meetings and appointments to the judiciary and public bodies, while removing anti-democratic elements from circulation in order to prevent any unhelpful misinterpretations of the concept of democracy itself. – Yours, etc,
