They have the option of voting for other parties; it just won't do much. That's nothing to do with how democratic it is. Democracy is the ability to vote. And i don't see how more democracy is inherently good. Democracy isn't perfect, it's simply better than the alternatives.

if you can find a serious (ie, not troll) quote of me directly saying that i hate women, I will give you a rep.

Where did i attack your grammar? Everyone has confirmation bias. But I articulate my reasons for disliking her policies on here occasionally and you can never mount a serious argument against my views.
please tell me you aren't serious? Democracy is having your voice heard and if you don't agree with the mainstream in a 2 party system then you can't have your voice heard.

the fact you said it as a troll quote and you have said that you like to say outrageous things about women for 'banter' mean whatever I find you will say I'm wrong, stop being a Nigel and pretending you aren't something you are. The more I hear from you the more I am convinced you are a blue who has convinced himself he's red.

in that post!!! And please tell me again.

Fallacy.
if you cannot attack the idea but instead have to attack the person you are wrong.

Democracy is indifferent to your voice being heard. You voting for your preferred party and them being large, or you voting for your party and them being small, is of no consequence to how democratic the choice is. Also, you want there to be no two large Parties it seems. That's undemocratic; let the voters decide.

Okay; look at any of my serious posts (arguing about feminism I shall count as serious) and pick something out.

I remember genuinly being confused about your spelling (i actually did think you meant "he") and i corrected a semantics mistake. I never once referred to your grammar.

It's a fallacy to posit that "He cannot demonstrate I am wrong" therefore means "Therefore he is wrong". You're supposed to be good at maths; think logically for once.

Not if the person is an illiterate, uneducated, unintelligent arse. Though generally, I agree with you - if you attack the person it means you can't find a fault with the argument

i find 2 party politics which is created by FPTP as bad, I do also think that 2 party politics isn't right for anyone because it forces the future to be made upon the choises of the past.

ok, gimme a sec....

Ok, generally in maths if H1 can't be proven we take H0 to be the case which is what I was doing....

religion: the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods.
well capitalism believes in a superhuman market that controls all of our lives, one that no one person has control over and often they say
the markets are the most fair and effective way of distribution of wealth
sounding like worship after all you don't question a god... Maybe we should redefine capitalism as a religion as opposed to a political ideology, it seems to fit that definition perfectly.

Throwback to when we went to see the easel outside Buckingham Palace for George's birth! Blimey that was a long time ago!

Its the barman's duty to maintain steady revenue to the Treasury via the bar. In a few terms bar revenue will be funding the Department for Education and in a few more after that 'Head of the Bar' will be a permanent cabinet position and/or title on the Queen's Birthday honours list.

What makes you say that? I think we'll have a Green majority.

Also, I apologise for my inactivity. I'm doing my best it's just that as the TSR election cracks on so does the RL election and I'm almost always out and about canvassing, leafleting or something, for instance on Monday I'm off to Haringey to meet Natalie and Jean Lambert talk about immigration and asylum seekers.

Well, We're growing increasingly popular on the national stage which is likely to resonate, and more people are likely to vote for us as they see it as a "safer" vote than in the actual general election. Overall I see no reason not to be optimistic and even though I don't expect a majority I can easily see us winning another election.
