Have you ever noticed the inverse relationship between use of the word "democratic" and belief in "democracy".
For instance, wherever a dictator is to be found, the word "democratic" will be sprinkled liberally in his speeches. Even the names of countries such as "German Democratic Republic" (East Germany before reunification) follow this rule.
Here's a challenge...
Can anyone name a country that has "Democratic" in its name that actually is a democracy? There are probably a few but I wonder how long it will be before Venezuela changes its name to the "People's Democratic Republic of ...".
In the UK, union leaders are the worst offenders followed by their political lackeys.
