2008 will be known as the year of democratic reform to the United Kingdom, a revolution that no body noticed.
Firstly, a new Bill of Rights (or values) will be introduced to Parliament in the coming weeks for debating and consultation. However, the Bill of
Rights 1689 is still in legal force and has never be altered. Why change it?
Party funding, voting system and powers of the House of Commons are being increased and changed. The government is aiming to build a more accountable,
representative and democratic system for Parliament, in hope to tackle voter apathy. Also, voting will be compulsory..democracy at gun point me thinks
My views are good, the current system is a monolithic unfair and old fashion animal. The Commons has become a gentlemens club, the government tends to
ignore it. But stripping of Royal powers will make the House very strong and significant once again. Restoring the arcane pillars is fundamental in
building and improving the foundations of the United Kingdom.
And, most importantly, the average citizen wants more power and control over their own lives. "People power" could help bring about a silent
revolution to our land.
