Re: The Leica Forum and British Democracy
In reply to Paul20, Mar 30, 2013

Nick,

What we need here is a good old fashioned British fudge.

Lets look at the British Democratic systems as a guide to the future of the Leica Forum.

British democracy is often held in high regard, yet our second chamber - The House of Lords are completely unelected. Similarly our Sovereign, the Queen, has ultimate power over Bills passed by the House of Lords/House of Commons, [she even has the power to go to war] and of course she is also unelected.

Our great democracy is not pure, our constitution is a fudge, based on years of power struggles, compromises and unwritten laws.

And yet.......and yet it - kinda works the way it is.

Paul

Haha! Are you proposing a class system?
