In Westminster system the largest non government party is official opposition party with full title of 'her majesty's loyal opposition' as opposed to 'her majesty's government'.

Word 'loyal' is quite important in understanding the idea of democracy under British system. It does not mean that opposition agrees with everything government does - to the contrary, its job is to criticize and oppose specific policies of the government.

What it does mean, however, is that opposition agrees to act within the rules of the system and does not try to undermine that system or the country.
For example, opposition is supposed to speak in parliament against a bill they oppose, but they are not supposed to try and scuttle it by using obscure procedural rules. They are even less supposed to incite riots against such a bill.

I find that the hyperpartisanship that prevents opposition from being 'loyal' is incredibly destructive.
