Direct Democracy proposal for Economics

Termination of DWP out-sourcing

Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose to reform the practice of out-sourcing services within the Department for Work and Pensions.

It is our belief that a serious lack of negotiation skills within the government has led directly to most DWP Job Centre external service providers having no incentive to match claimants with long-term vacancies. Some providers collect fees of up to £2000 per claimant upon securing employment and, there are no incentives placed upon these providers to ensure that they are providing the best service to the claimants.

To summarise; A service provider will be paid a full fee regardless of what happens to the claimant once the claimant has commenced employment. This money could be off-set against the savings that the DWP prioritises when making decisions regarding benefit entitlements.

The People's Administration believes that the role of securing employment for DWP job centre claimants should fall within the remit of the DWP itself. We believe that all DWP job centres should be providing this service and that reforming job centres into state-ran employment agencies would save money and improve performance in all areas.

The DWP should not be acting as a money-saving agency for the state. Whilst the DWP should be ran as efficiently as possible, its primary function and focus should be spent on nothing other than securing long-term [primarily] work positions for claimants. All DWP incentives and rewards programs that encourage staff to make decisions regarding benefits entitlements against benefits costs will be removed and a comprehensive reform to this aspect will be implemented.

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
