Infernal Teddy:
Oh, they are, but the system is a slightly weird hybrid thingy. Bith like the athenian democracy, really - a permanent work in progress

Yes, well, by that standard the US is not a democracy, either. In fact over the last decade-plus, various right-wing pedants have emphasizing the "republic not a democracy" angle to justify the 2000 election, talk down the 2012 election, etc.

I think the best real argument against the UK being a democracy is that it lacks a formal constitution. But in a practical sense, even this doesn't matter.
