So you voted, you had the choice of voting for a guy who had ALREADY been selected by the electoral college or a completely different guy who has been selected by the electoral college. Funnily enough the political compass shows them as been within 2% a/l and 5% l/r different.
Maybe U r a Krackhead? That makes sense

You lie drippydick, however this is to be expected from a liar so I am not surprised. I would not have voted for Cameron had I lived in his constituency of Whitney but I don’t.
More lies, you are clueless. Those who are elected to parliament are voted for by popular vote of the citizenship of their constituency. Who will be PM is elected by his party, it’s usually the leader of his party but not necessarily, say for example the leader of a party was not elected by his constituency then he would not become PM. A vote for joe blogs is also a vote for joe blogs party and hence joe blogs party leader so yes the British do get to vote for who will be PM. There you learned something about the dark art of British politics so now perhaps you will p|ss off?
Let me remind you The United States Electoral College is the institution that officially elects the President and Vice President of the United States every four years. The President and Vice President are not elected directly by the voters.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electoral_Colleg... (United_States)
Also take a look at the 14th amendment of the unalienable rights of US citizens rights
Section 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment allows for a state's representation in the House of Representatives to be reduced to the extent that state unconstitutionally denies people the right to vote.
Is that democracy in actions?
<quoted text>
The US had a constitutional document the UK has constitutional laws – live with it.
I am not confused but I see that you are, the 14th amendment that restricts your right to vote – perhaps that I the one you are conversed about?
Or is it nothing to do with the constitution and the Electoral College who officially elects the President and Vice President of the United States that has you confused.
<quoted text>
Does it drippydick – does it?
The Electoral College officially elects the President of the United States
Read earlier in this post of how the british electoral system works but I will remind you, a vote for a prospective MP is a vote for his party and hence a vote of confidence in that parties choice of who will be PM. If Cameron has lost the vote in Whitney he would not now be PM – hence he was voted for by the electorate – twice.
Barefoot has had the PM's election explained to him by me and probably others also. His problem is that he conflates the PM with the president and thinks that, like the president, the PM is some kind of entity outwith Parliament.

But when you must pretend that ceremony and titles are literal in political institutions, you must distort reality accordingly. Barefoot, frankly, is a manchild.

I explained the APPOINTMENT of the office of PM to you.

SuperFAG.

Do call me when you get to vote for the office- for the first time.

Because when you say that you voted for PM, all I have to do is ask when.

Gosh, your problem is you conflate your delusions with reality.

There is no comparison between the elected office of the president of the United States and the appointment of the prime minsiter of the United KINGDOM.

We live in a democracy and elect our head of sate... and you live in a kingdom and you are not even a citizen.

You are a subject of the monarchy.
