Direct Democracy proposal for Foreign Policy

The returning of disputed foreign artefacts

The People's Administration believes that the UK government's claims of ownership of artefacts discovered and removed from foreign lands amounts to pure theft. The government's 'argument' is based upon these artefacts being better preserved if in the UK and, that they give people a more comprehensive view of history when displayed together in a British museum.

In a legal respect, this is the opinion of a thief and since when did the opinion of the thief outweigh the opinion of the law and of the rightful owner in deciding upon rights of ownership? Our point is that regardless of the opinion of the UK government [whether wrong or right], it is for the owners of such artefacts to decide upon where they would like their property to be displayed - if at all.

While Germany refuses to return over £65 BN worth of art stolen from Greece during World War Two, the Greek economy collapses and the UK government rubs it in their faces by refusing to return the Parthenon marbles.

In the interests of national integrity, should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose to relinquish all currently disputed artefacts currently held anywhere in the world under UK government ownership, to their rightful foreign owners.

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 of the democratic principals up-held by the UN [which the UK has signed-up to], the people already have the lawful right to reform to direct democracy - even outside a general election.
