Mandatory “sex lessons” for all 15 year olds in the U.K.

Per the TimesOnline.  I’m thinking that something is lost in the translation. From reading the article it appears that what we call sex education they call sex lessons.

But what really caught my eye was that 79% polled believed that there should be allowed to opt out of the class. But the new law does not permit any student to opt out, no matter what their parents’ objections might be, and any who do not attend will be punished as truants. 

What the hell is going on in the U.K.? I thought it was a democracy.  When 79% oppose a new law, I thought that meant that the law would not pass, and if it does, that whoever was responsible would be thrown out the next election.  This is even worse than what the Dems are doing here with Cap and Trade and ObamaCare, where they only are opposed by approximately 55% of the voters.   Somebody needs to be shot. No, wait, you panzy Brits gave up the right to own firearms decades ago.
