Absolutely because the majority of British voters didn't vote Tory, but the UK is a democracy so I have to respect that.


What's remarkable about other countries using the democratic process to represent their best interests in their own country, and thereby, in EU decision making? That's what happens in all group decision making...you find the common ground and work on that.
Exactly the majority of British voters DIDN'T vote Conservative. Although it is also worth mentioning that a GREATER majority of British voters DIDN'T vote Labour.

Also a GREATER number of voters backed the Lib Dems (7.9%) than the SNP (4.7%) and yet walked away with 8 seats (vs 56).

The greater tragedy is that none of the 27 Monster Raving Loony Party candidates won a seat.
