My answer to Should UK adopt Additional Member System for Westminster elections?
Answer by Desmond Last:
If the people want even more politicians to not represent them and to cost even more and produce a new goveremt every-time agreements cannot be reached – yes. But for me No. We badly need democratic reform in the U.K. We have too much Government and that which we have is not component enough. Incompetent Government appears to have sneaked up on the people of the UK under the guise of false promises and the Doctors of Spin. Not speaking the true facts and never answering the question seem to have become an art form – there must be a University for it somewhere in the U.K.When I can endure the pain I watch the antics of the House of Commons and wonder if they are on another Planet or simply pissed with the wine of the Commons Bar. Do they ever take any notice of us. The rigor-mortis of the House of Lords is an eighth wonder of the World. They are not elected. I have to say that again hoping somewhere somebody will join me in a revolution – they are not elected. Why oh Why are they there at all? They could all be asleep or dead for all the use they are, and there are over 800 of them! Are the people of the UK that apathetic they will accept people making decisions for them who never consult them? I have a new system – it is called the People’s democracy. I want it for the United Nations and it suits emerging democratizes – unlike the Westminster system forced upon so many failed states. The second house becomes an experts and community group house. It represents the Police, the Faiths, the Doctors , the bin men , the RSPCA and the homeless. It has specialist subject days, so different representatives meet according to the subject. We vote for our Monarch who sits in the House when necessary.- so it is also a development of the Monarch into a popular People’s monarch. It can propose to the First House and alter the First House. It has no Political Parties and it meets every week of the year. No long holidays. It is the first major development of democracy since proportional representation. However as I do not exist to the UK media and the UK people that is the end of that. But I will be welcome in other countries who will want to discuss and debate it with me. Thanks for asking me the Question. In 8 years of writing I have totally ignored by the Media and Government. http://www.desmondlast.com
