It's why the opposition party is named the opposition party.
This is nothing new. Been this way since they were called royalists, loyalists, tories and whigs.

Yes. I don't know how it was back then, I was born in 1950, but it seems every year the opposition politics gets more sinister and hateful. For example, I don't follow any party lines so I enjoy a good open but unprejudical discussion. Candidly, you can no longer entertain that. The other end of the discussion goes into extreme exaggerations and even outright lies. Not conducive to communication.

I'm a constitutional literalist, so I just skip the opions, and just go straight to what the "old-fashion" piece of paper says.
