    That sucks but as a wise orphan once said (or sang)
    "The sun'll come out
    Tomorrow
    Bet your bottom dollar
    That tomorrow"

    Factually according to who?

    Anyway, my point was you're taking an extremely narrow definition. Democracy is a lot broader than that.

    The simple basis of democracy is that the citizens of a country have the opportunity to influence the running of the country and it's laws, meaning the UK is a democratic country. I don't see how you come to the conclusion my definition is narrow, I would say that's quite broad

    The ideal amount of democracy is the least amount that's required to placate the average citizen. Having people who didn't finish school and don't know the first thing about politics or economics make decisions for the country is obviously dangerous.

    edit: assuming we're adopting a majoritarian definition of democracy.
