Parliamentary System Flawed

The problem with the system is that nobody really votes for a change in the Prime Ministers office. Who elected this woman, apart from her local constituents?

Who decides who will lead the country: the politicians, the crown's representative or the public?!

Another weakness of the parliamentary system is that there are no free votes on major issues without the government falling.

Canada has a similarly flawed system. In the case of a minority government, it can be unclear which party should rule. Does the Governor General have the right to decide? (talk)16:22, 15 July 2010

I like the Queen, The Governor-General and quite frankly the idea of having a neutral head of state. However, I dislike how everyone is pitted against each other and I especially dislike how we cannot vote for a single individual to be head of government and for that individual to be then able to pick the best people regardless of party to form their cabinet...nothing gets done cause they are always fighting each other...
