The "world's oldest democracy," UK stands on the brink

Editor's Note: Over 400 days have passed since the first Summit for Democracy in the U.S. However, the U.S. and its allies have not given the world a good impression of democracy in this period. CGTN presents a series of data pictures to showcase the reality of "Western democracy," and we hope to encourage critical reflection on it around the world. The second picture "The 'world's oldest democracy,' UK stands on the brink" exposes the current state of democracy in the UK, with press freedom under threat, a government in crisis, and double standards in the democratic process.

Persecution of journalists, government in turmoil, public protests calling for change... The UK, known as the "world's oldest democracy," is facing a crisis.
