Re: Western democracies would do this if they could get away with it

Errr, no I'm not confusing "I don't like who won" with "it's not a democracy".

A legitimate democracy is about representing everyone equally. In the UK, we definitely don't have that, as explained by the BBC. In 2015, a UKIP MP required almost 4M votes to get one seat, the Greens, 1.2M and LIbDems 300K whilst Tories and Labour only needed 30K.

Maybe you could explain in your own words how that has anything to do with being a democracy. It has more in common with the Democratic (sic) Republic of North Korea where the controlling votes are stacked in favour of the ruling elite.

BTW people who highlight AC posts are more interested in shooting the messenger than defending their own claims. Nice distraction try though - no doubt you'll use it again when someone else disagrees with your views. But at least we'll know it's you:)
