Alright, since i am taking the con side of this debate, I am going to prove why you're points are inherently flawed. First, You talk about how Pressure groups show a more healthy democracy. Actually its the complete opposite. This is true because labor unions show that big money/business isn't running this country. Labor unions represent a group of workers separate from that corporation. So if that same corporation makes a poor decision to cut salaries, then a labor union can peacefully protest that decision. This shows that people will express their opinions against a big corporation, which Furthers democracy.

Next, lets show why Pressure groups hurt our country. . Here is the problem when a pressure group gets together they show a large distaste for something of our government. When these groups get together they don't protest ideas peacefully, instead they riot. Sometimes members bring weapons such as guns and knives. Presure groups = Violence

First of all genius you are on the "pro" side of the argument. Now to back up why pressure groups are more important trade unions is that they Criticize the government, which is what happens in a democracy country. Although some pressure groups result in violence, some pressure groups get through to the government and do make an impact on laws and society. Every one is a democracy country has the right and will criticize the government.
