Direct Democracy proposal for Economics
Commercialisation of UK waterways
The People's Administration believes that opening-up the UK's waterways to private enterprise could bring a boost to the UK tourism industry and therefore also to the entire UK economy. We also believe that if done in balance with the natural environment, that the natural environment will receive greater attention and protection than it currently does.
As an example, Birmingham has more canals than venice - yet nothing moves on them and no one interacts with them. There are no water sports facilities and hardly any freight use with only one company remaining.
Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose to encourage and support the movement of commercial and industrial freight using the UK's waterways. We believe that many businesses could make savings if they were able to consider the option of moving goods by water as opposed to by road or rail. This in turn would also have positive effects on the natural environment as there would be less CO2 emissions per mile.
For the same reasons, the People's Administration also propose to do the same with regards to water sports facilities across the UK.
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
