Direct Democracy proposal for Economics
100% of new additional increase in Tax Duty against tobacco and alcohol producers going towards funding the NHS
Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose that tax duty be increased for tobacco and alcohol manufacturers and retailers and that 100% of the increase be directed only towards the funding of the NHS and drug rehabilitation programmes.
While the manufacturers and retailers benefit directly from the sale of these products, the health and wealth of the people diminishes and as such, we believe that manufacturers and retailers should take more responsibility for their part in how their products negatively affect their customers and the NHS.
We do not believe that price-fixing will reduce accessibility, but that it will instead only increase revenues to the manufacturers and, there is also an argument for how this penalises those who drink responsibly.
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
