We vote for a party based on their aims and claims for future stuff or how much they say they'll save us from the nasty terrorists or whatever.
The leader of the most voted for party- even if it's a minority of the country voting for it- traditionally becomes Prime Minister.
So the problem is that Labour, while they seem to have gotten in place perfectly legally, haven't honoured most of their election promises for the last decade or so. Though yeah, we don't vote for a Prime Minister. Probably should given the huge step up in overt Stasi-esque-ness since Blair left...
Also, "its a new law they told everybody via twatter"? They actually tell us new laws? I thought we only found out about new laws (a) when the Media got a hold of one and thought "OMFG THIS IS A STORY!" or (b) when you get nicked because plod doesn't like you and it turns out the law was passed last week.
Anyone out there- is there a Book of Law? Or Website of Law? Not just case studies, but a definitive "THOU SHALT NOT XYZ"? If not, how do I know there isn't a law against, for example, being called Adam Foxton?
