If you're interested in politics at all I'd recommend it......just dont expect everyone to welcome you to their door!
(You'll never look at any of the party workers in the same light again.
I case i've not put my idea across correctly, i don't mean for Britain to be ruled through continous referendums, but to have public votes on
very important matters such as EU membership, fox hunting, death penalty etc
- Hmm, I still don't really like it UK Wizard. It's too populist for my liking.
I suppose it might seem OK if you think you're going to get the result you want I suppose but that isn't necessarily going to be the right result
I think ultimately it does undermine Parliament and our representitive democracy.
Where is the ability to scrutinise in depth and contradict if the scrutiny shows the decision erronious?
