  2. Didn't like it because it was unsubstantiated...

    Didn't like it because it was unsubstantiated beyond "If the other stuff isn't actually working properly then more democracy won't fix it."

    It remains unsubstantiated.

    Xercies...

    1. I put 6 points to you regarding the undemocratic nature of the EU, and you've ignored them.
    2. I've clearly challenged the relevancy of all your supporting material, and you've...

    1. Your link regarding Cornwall has nothing to do with support for your claim that:

    a) Voters had been "misinformed"
    b) They "woke up" as you put it, in the context you intended

    1. You don't like democracy?

    2. These people would be insignificant in number, because "extremists and bigots" form an insignificant part of UKIP voters. Not only that, UKIP have accomplished...
  9. You like the idea of proportional representation,...

    You like the idea of proportional representation, but you don't like the idea of representation being proportional?
  10. Democratic Deficit & My Solution (Warning: Politics rant)

    I'm an enormously jaded gamer, yet Rimworld has reawakened my nasty habit of spending too much time sat staring at a screen, so for that, I give it a a lot of credit. I knew it was going to tick my...

    I have read maybe 2-3 books in my life, but played a good deal of video games.

    I'm going to have to steer clear from any remark that more recent games have better UI's. I distinctly remember enjoying older games specifically for their simpler and snappier UI. When 3D graphics...
