Every time I hear a Conservative politician complaining about a Prime Minister "not elected by the British people" (as Lord Hurd and William Hague have on live TV just now), I wonder if they really know anything about our electoral system. I don't ever remember getting the opportunity vote for a Prime Minister, only a local Member of Parliament.

Why do broadcasters never challenge this?

Any why for that matter to such politicians also seem to conveniently forget that John Major was in the very same position in 1990? Surely they know; the only conclusion I can come up with is that they are deliberately trying to manipulate the public.

Conservatives: ignorant, forgetful and manipulative. Not exactly what I would hope for out of a Government.
