I said that we should get rid of this silly little experiment in "democracy" - and I stand by the argument that its a failed experiment, since we don't have democracy, we still have a division between classes of legislators and legislatees.

Thats really interesting Ernie - the fact that you chose to crop the context of my comment, but leave the header and "posted 4 months ago" footer in to give the impression that that was what I said, without the context. A quite interesting example of you deliberately manipulating peoples comments to present a different impression.
Tell me Ernie - why did you choose to go so far as to keep the header and footer in, but remove the orhte relevant context?
Do you believe in democracy, or universal suffrage?
Do we have democracy in the UK? Since you're defending it, I would imagine you think so... but proletarian democracy is not just representative democracy, but participatory democracy
I said that we should get rid of this silly little experiment in "democracy" - and I stand by the argument that its a failed experiment, since we don't have democracy, we still have a division between classes of legislators and legislatees. Parliamentary democracy was never supported by Lenin, Marx or Engels.
You should be all for my argument Ernie - your failure to realise that parliamentary democracy is a continuation of the class division that prevents a democracy of the proletariat shows that, despite a lifetime of espousing the ideals and goals of the left, you've never come to truly understand what you're asking for!
Interesting that you should choose to misrepresent the context TJ... that my comment was about "this failed experiment" in "democracy" not out of a lack of support for democracy, but a lack of support for the pseudo democratic representative parliamentary system that we had in this country. Very different construction of the argument in a very different context.
