NI more democratic than England

At least our First and Deputy First Ministers were elected on their respective tickets, but not Gordon Brown. The news tonight is that he is going to succeed to the Blair throne unopposed. How democratic is that? (Not one bit).

Should Paisley or McGuinnes decide to step down the same would the same not happen to their posts?

And perhpas it's pedantic but "England" ? He'll be the PM of the UK.

I was under the impression that we don't vote for a PM directly. The party with the most MPs after an election is the ruling party; the leader of that party is appointed PM by the Queen.

I could be wrong, I don not know. This is just my impression.
