Dissatisfied ?

The main result of a BBC survey of world public opinion suggests that only 30% of people feel that their government is governed by the will of the people !

More detailed breakdown of the results.

An interesting quote from the article...
  • It would have been an even worse sign if the results had been otherwise. We do not want any of those referendums in totalitarian and dictatorial countries which regularly showed over 90% government approval and, in Saddam Hussein's case, over 100%.
Another article on the BBC website regarding this survey.
