The question they seem unable to ask has been revealed on the Army Rumour Service;

I find it amusing that the fact people have voted for a legitimate political party can be bad for democracy i always thought voting for who you wanty was the whole point of the processPrecisely. I will never be in favour of the banning of any political party, no matter how abhorrent their policies, because the moment we make subjective decisions about who is allowed to stand for election, we become undemocratic. I too was rolling my eyes as each of the main parties lamented the attack on democracy, yet all they were lamenting were the votes which they failed to win. As the results prove, we are a generally very tolerant people and the protest / kick up the arse votes went mainly to the Green party and independents, so democracy has worked well.

Want to see that again?

yet all they were lamenting were the votes which they failed to win

Not too difficult to see is it?
