Does the British system work better than ours?

Two weeks ago Britain’s parliament voted in favor of legalizing gay marriage. While this particular law has no real effect in America there are a couple glaring differences that must be noted:

1. British Conservatives voted 127 in favor to 136 against.
2. No Conservatives used the argument that if gay people are allowed to marry then who’s to stop people from marrying their pets.

The fact that you have heard the second point used as an argument in America goes to show how many stupid people reside in our country. That being said I want to focus more on the first point. Mainly that conservatives actually did their job and didn't just vote exactly the same as their cohorts.

Side Note: I know nothing of British Parliament. While these results make me think that they are leaps and bounds ahead of the American democratic process, they still have a long way to go when it comes to food and dentistry.
