I don't see the logic here. The clown with the most votes wins. This is democracy at its finest.
Funnily enough Adolf Hitler got the most votes too at one point.
You don't like democracy when it doesn't go the way you like ?
I like British Democracy, I don't wish to live anywhere else.
I''m also not batshit crazy enough to think that Hitler was a good thing for Germany, Europe or anyone else for that matter and i take an interest in the lessons that can be learned from the catastrophic failure of a political system.
The bleating of people (mainly from other countries) who say that the UK system is terribly unfair ignore that fact that it has worked perfectly well for hundreds of years, it may be weird from some outside perspectives but it does work and has so far not yet failed in the same way as an ideologically pure form of democracy did.
Like many things in life an ideologically driven one size fits all model for people with different cultures and history and aspirations is a recipe for a disaster, if nothing else history has proven this time and time again, eventually people get pissed off and things change. British democracy wouldn't work in France as you lot would probably chop the queens head off and French democracy wouldn't work in the UK because there is not an overwhelming desire for it, quite the opposite in fact if you believe in the number of votes cast either way.
I hope your buratino's die screaming.
