Not being allowed to vote was a bit like gay people not being allowed to marry: it's constitutional confirmation that you're not quite on the same level as everyone else.

On top of that, the voting system was relatively fresh at that point, and an obvious leap from the hierarchical system that had been in place previously. That doesn't mean we should stick with it forever, and wanting to tweak and build on it is offending Suffragettes. Societies need to be evolving, changeable systems just as we as individuals grow. Otherwise we'll get in the same situation as the American rights to bear arms peoples, who still cling to a law put in place when you were at risk of being attacked by rogue bears, redskins and redcoats.

Also, there was an active socialist influence in the country back then. Not so now betwixt Labour, Liberal and Conservatives. Surely, if we put our minds to it, we can come up with something better than that!
