Direct Democracy proposal for Energy

Energy-saving Mercury light bulbs to be banned

Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose to ban the manufacturing, import and distribution of so-called 'energy-saving' light bulbs that contain mercury.

The former Labour Government implemented this policy against standard light bulbs and, to allow mercury light bulbs in their place but, mercury bulbs release deadly-poisonous mercury vapours into the air if accidentally broken and, when they reach land fill sites. Although they use less electricity and are cheaper to run, both scenarios are bad for health and bad for the environment.

In our opinion, being that LED light systems are far more efficient than either mercury or standard bulbs and, have no emissions other than light, we suspect that it is for political reasons that this policy was implemented. It has not been reversed by the coalition and no party is promoting awareness of LED lights systems or funding the research and development of LED light systems.

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
