Democracy Our Way

US, Uk and Canada walk out.... when Democracy does not favour them. Fake Democracies which still insist on dictating to others.

The ITU voting is on a one country one vote basis regardess of population. Furthermore many of the countries voting in favour of this treaty are not themselves democratic so their votes are not representative of the populations of those countries. So this is be a very strange definition of democracy!
