Car Crushing policy to be revoked

The People's Administration believes that the coalition's policy of crushing vehicle as penalty for road tax payment evasion and for improper use is abhorrent, abusive, insulting, spiteful and highly wasteful.

We feel that taking possession of any legally obtained private property as punishment for road tax payment evasion is unjust as the value of the vehicle will always exceed the road tax amount itself and, this amount will always be far less than the vehicle may be worth.

It simply doesn't equate and so it is disproportionate.

The People's Administration finds it a sad reflection of government thinking that their own spite prevents them from conceiving far more productive policies in dealing with issues such as this.

The People's Administration can not believe that these vehicles are taken and destroyed and not instead at least liquidated for financial gain if not given to charity. The UK economy is weak and there are countless charities across the UK that could utilise either these vehicles or the cash from their liquidation.

Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose that if we are going to take vehicles from their owners as a legal penalty for road tax payment evasion, that these vehicles be liquidated and that the people decide how this income should be spent.

The coalition have launched a pilot in Birmingham [April 2011] where motorbike riders who ride across off-road public land will have their bikes confiscated and crushed. Not one bike will be liquidated and not one bike will go to any of Birmingham's children's charities.

As crushing vehicles is highly illogical, a policy such as this could not come from a government that is seriously considering the environment, the economy or social cohesion.

Voting for direct democracy outside a general election

Direct Democracy - Audio

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
