I'm beginning to think they all are. The system is corrupt and our politicians act as if they are above the law. I miss the days when I was naive enough to believe that our elected officials were actually looking out for OUR best interest.

At least your President is elected. We have Gordon Brown in the UK but not one person has ever cast a vote for him to be our Prime Minister. He was installed as the PM when Tony Blair quit the job and the public have no say until the next election!

Nobody I know has a good word to say for this talentless, self serving, gutless, insincere buffoon and yet here is, leading us to rack and ruin.

It's absolutely mindblowing that the UK isn't actually a democracy at this moment in time! What do you think of that eh:dunno:.....

Wow, that is a tough one.
Though we may have free elections here in the states, I'm not convinced that we have an informed electorate. The media is biased and the slant is obvious.

Even so,,,,, I feel your pain.
What is this world coming to?

Its the rules here are that if a PM steps down (and they usually do so after they become completely incompetent, if not corrupt as per the Conservatives of the 1990's) they get to choose their successor.
Thatcher became incredibly unpopular by the end of her time in number 10 so she quit and handed over to John Major who became just as unpopular as he was unique among human beings in that he had no detectable personality. Blair has handed over to Brown after he (Blair) became unpopular with the voters. Many would also argue that the current Labour is becoming more and more corrupt. Brown has managed to start his term with the distinction of being unpopular from the very outset, without the usual honeymoon period enjoyed by such leaders.

So out of our last 4 Prime Ministers a mere 2 have been elected!!!!

In my humble opinion if a PM steps down then there should be an immediate general election. What are the rules in the US?

Only 5 US Presidents have reached the office without having been elected. The most recent was President Gerald Ford. This is made possible via the 25th amendment to our constitution
The Twenty-fifth Amendment (Amendment XXV) to the United States Constitution deals with succession to the Presidency and establishes procedures both for filling a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, as well as responding to Presidential disabilities.
Gotta love Wikipedia.

Typically, Presidents are elected, and hopefully it will stay that way :)
