 "The government seems to have only two guiding principles: setting political traps for its opponents, and extending the power of the executive." (Camilla Cavendish, FT 19 May 2022)

A strong dose of mandatory Direct Democracy would avoid a lot of this behavior!

Pointless Laws - only Direct Democracy can reduce this Avalanche

 "Politics has become a dismal race to pass as many pointless laws as possible" (Philip Johnston, Daily Telegraph)

Given the avalanche of laws and regulations produced in the UK but also in all other countries, and including the EU, there is a need to introduce Direct Democracy as a safety valve and filter.

Who makes our Laws and Regulations?

Direct Democracy would require that all new legislation and regulation is subject to detailed scrutiny and ultimately would have to be subjected to a referendum if there is not enough transparency or agreement on the issue.

New Expert Group to rule over us

It is amazing with what arrogance our 'Elites' rule over us - not a single person in this list of 'Dignitaries' (the swear word due jour from now on) owes his position on this 'Taskforce' to a democratic mandate. Does one need a stronger argument for the introduction of Direct Democary?

Where is the Mandate from the 'Civil Society'?

Another 'Global Forum' that claims to speak for you and me. The buzzword of the 'Civil Society' is easily used by unrepresentative Elites, Experts and Lobbyists to create a smokescreen for their aims. The mythical Civil Society can only be the collective will of the citizens, expressed in a majority vote on the specific issues and by elections that safeguard minorities and fundamental rights set down in the Constitution.

Has anybody asked for your consent?

End of Cash, Higher Carbon taxes, Global Tax harmonisation....With Direct Democracy you the Citizen would have the ultimate say on these issues.

Who is running our Countries?

The unrepresentative World Economic Forum or the citizens? And please - spare us the royal 'We', the WEF is just another lobby and represents nobody but those working for it or supporting it. Therefore all these 'needs' must be subject to the ultimate say of the voters, not the governments that are all too often closely aligned with these lobbies that pose as think tanks and claim some sort of moral authority.

Citizens' Conventions to revive Democracy?

Looks like a simple solution to revive moribund political systems. But there is a much more effective one - it is called a Referendum. No argument about who is taking part, and whether or not the political establishment implements its conclusions - and that is if they even bother to take more than token notice of them.

Complaint Culture weaponised by tiny Minorities

That dance on the noses of the silent majority. It is much too easy to 'complain', just a click on the phone or internet, and voila, the 'complaint' is posted and some jobsworth in an unelected agency is obliged to treat it with utmost seriousness. The number of complainers is in no proportion to the total list of citizens, sometimes ONE (!!) complaint is sufficient to get attention by equally woke media desperate for anything that helps to fill the pages of their newspapers or broadcast time on radio, TV or webpages.
