We've always had an unelected Head of State. We now have an unelected head of government. Gordon Brown is now, to all intents and purposes, Prime Minister of the UK. No-one voted for him. Not even his own party, let alone the country. The power-loving apparatchiks and sycophants which make up the Parliamentary Labour Party didn't have enough backbone between them to muster just 45 supporters for a challenger. So no election, no debate, no forcing Gordon Brown to come out with more than the vacuous buzzwords he's mouthed so far ("trust... renewal..."). No democracy.
