@jonny_anonymous: you really think the 57 MPs the conservatives used to make sure they could form a minority government proves its not a two party system?

Well you welcome to your view, but its a bit strange, the fact that they gained 1% of the electorate but lost 5 seats just shows how crazy it is... They have not achieved one of their policies and can only argue they slightly adjusted some of the Tories...

Where do people get all this misguided belief in their governments, when electoral turnout is never much above 50% so your lucky the party in power is voted for by more then 25% of the population... If your happy that's democracy then I think you need to look at some other countries...

What's worse is all the old traditions that allow the poor elections to exist, that allow banks to run amuck, that allow the whole country to shut down because you don't want the president you elected to do anything with his power. Yet you still think it is amazing and works.

@jonny_anonymous: so what did you mean? Just because there are more then two parties doesn't mean the numbers of MPs they have reflects the % of voters they have, or conservatives would have 36% Labour 29% Lib Dem 23% not the conservative 47% Labour 39% Lib dem 9% we have

We know why, because the conservatives and labour want to stay in power, but sadly its not democracy... Does nobody else watch Sunday politics? Or visit the government website? Or read history? I am starting to worry its just me :(

@jonny_anonymous: really? Good luck getting UKIP even one seat under the current system, why do you think Lib Dems were so desperate for a change?

But so far everyone's highlighting the issue perfectly, everyone wants tradition yet there is no longer representation by the people for the people, its a case of for a minority, by a minority.

@erik: lol, yeah, spellings

Umm you do realise the constitution isn't just one line? That's actually one of the less damaging things in there... But whatever, if this turns into a don't touch my magic paper thread ill ditch it... I seriously would like to know why we are not progressive when voting numbers keeps dropping, due to out of touch useless governments where no party has a majority, because there is no real difference between parties. We all know this is because the people with control live in the back rooms and pull whatever leaders strings to make sure nothing changes.

The last 100 years have shown the US constitution and the UK parliament should be ditched...

They don't work, they promote two party politics, so they are Instantly undemocratic as they do not show proportional representation.

It could be argued it is the rigid outdated governments that caused the second world war and two financial crashes. In any other walk of life if something that broke you bin it and pay experts to create something fit to purpose.

I feel that as long as right wing people put tradition above common sense we will just see more war and more depression and less interest in politics... When every party is ask ally the same, its just despotism with a changing face to mislead people. The staff in the offices that actually run our countries hardly ever change and only have their own agenders.

No wonder the Scots want to jump ship.

Bruce Banner could beat Batman with prep, he is much smarter. Hulk would SMASH batman without prep as nothing can beat the Hulk... I am bias but I also love Batman, he is a modern Sherlock... But don't put him against monsters, gods or aliens, it ruins his character.

Batman, greatest detective also he would make the greatest thief... Fans who like to make him all things jus screw him up IMO... Stop it
