    During the Brexit campaign, dozens of mighty democracy warriors came out to tell us how we need to TAKE BACK CONTROL from the UNITED STATES OF EUROPE because they were UNDEMOCRATIC.

    Where are these people now? Our head of state is still a monarch who was born into the role, all of our laws still need to go through a house of unelected officials, and our new PM wasn't even chosen by her own party, she just happens to have been the only candidate.

    We're the least democratic country in Europe, maybe in the developed Western world, and while everyone is celebrating TAKING BACK CONTROL we're actually handing more control than ever to a PM that nobody wanted.

    What would be the purpose of a general election at such a time? If anything the result of the referendum reaffirmed support for a Conservative government.

    How, the party had no real policy on the outcome and the government very much wanted to remain.

    people acting like there's anything unreasonable about an unelected leader.

    She commands the confidence of the house of commons, that's what matters

    You can't see the problem with celebrating a 'win' for democracy, then following that up by installing a leader with no popular vote, without even a vote of her own, ruling party.

    They probably agree with you.

    How about put it to the country:
    Theresa May or Nigel Farage.

    Referendum please.
    Let the people decide.

    If there was a stable government to be formed and to lead the country given the decision to leave the EU, the only choice would be a Conservative government. Key thing here being government, which can always change. Not the Cameron ministry.

    Things don't even have to be passed through the lords, the most they can do is place a delay on it which can then be forced through with or without their consent

    I thought the whole point of the EU referendum was to shake things up and give democracy back to the people, the new PM was selected more by default than democracy.
