Direct Democracy proposal for Economics
Review of all previous and current government-commissioned IT projects
We believe that many savings could come through abolishing and/or cannibalising many government-commissioned IT projects.
Most of the projects that could be terminated are projects that are currently failing or spiraling out of financial control anyway and so it is obvious that there is much room for improvement.
With regards to the security of such projects, we feel that the government is making our personal privacy even more vulnerable by misleading themselves and then the people, by stating that network-connected databases can be made 100% secure and, we feel that complacency at government level with regards to digitised personal data is highly dangerous.
There have been multiple incidences of nothing short of complete incompetence on the past government's behalf as they demonstrated time and time again that they were absolutely incapable of safeguarding data. The latest blunder involves HM Revenue and Customs [again!] whose £2.7 BN system managed to send tax notices to the wrong people. This is the same office that lost the benefit details of 25 M people in 2007 and this office still can't tell us where these details went.
We also believe that the past government's failure to really grasp the power, efficiencies, strengths and weaknesses of the Internet and its associated technologies, has led to failure and incompetence when negotiating contracts with IT firms.
In our opinion, any plan that involves using foreign-based corporates such as Microsoft or Google [such as David Cameron is suggesting] to host and manage any information, is abhorrent and completely unnecessary as there are many UK-based companies that could fulfil any potential contracts and in our opinion, this is not the time to be out-sourcing work to foreign suppliers of any nature.
Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose to review the viability of all existing government IT projects.
Voting for direct democracy outside a general election
It is up to us, the people [not the politicians] to use the power that we have always had, to choose to implement direct democracy as soon as possible.
This is not a protest campaign.
In accordance with Magna Carta Article 61 and with UN UDHR Article 21 and with all democratic principals up-held by the UN [which the UK is signed-up to], the People's Administration's Direct Democracy Twitter blog is a UN-sanctioned and legally recognised voting format for UK reform to direct democracy - even outside a general election.
Vote legitimately for a peaceful and structured UK reform to direct democracy now simply by following the People's Administration's Direct Democracy Twitter blog and when numbers reach a point of critical mass, we'll do the rest.
The People's Administration's constitution for reform to direct democracy and our voting protocols for implementing direct democracy have both been accepted by the UK Electoral Commission and the UN as legitimate. In a general election, the People's Administration DOES NOT have to field candidates to secure your vote on the ballot paper. Outside a general election, you can vote for a legitimate reform to direct democracy now by following @self_rule
