You don't live in a democracy. The UK government is a constitutional monarchy; a system of government in which a monarch is guided by a constitution whereby his/her rights, duties, and responsibilities are spelled out in written law or by custom. The USA government is a constitution-based federal republic with a strong democratic tradition; a state in which the powers of the central government are restricted and in which the component parts (states, colonies, or provinces) retain a degree of self-government; ultimate sovereign power rests with the voters who chose their governmental representatives.
I don't think there is any such thing as a true democracy. It seems that everywhere you go there is a small group of people deciding what is best for everyone.
