Direct Democracy proposal for Home Affairs, Security and Policing
Intensification of prisoner rehabilitation programmes
Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose to intensify and expand upon current prisoner rehabilitation schemes – especially restorative justice schemes that involve those convicted of violent crimes facing their victims. We recognise the potential therapeutic value to the victim and the potential for the offender to rehabilitate and, we propose to expand the schemes nationally as with immediate effect.
• The cost of reoffenders returning to prison is said to be approx. £10 BN per year
• tax payer savings of implementing national restorative justice schemes are estimated at £60 M per year
• For every £1 spent on Restorative Justice, the tax payer saves £8
• Approx. 27% reduction in reoffending
• 85% of victims claim that it helped them to rehabilitate
Over 95% of first-time teenage convicts re-offend and return to custody!
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.
Following the People's Administration Direct Democracy Party [a mainstream registered party since March 2010] on Twitter, gives us your permission [when a majority] to invoke existing laws under UN Articles 21 and 61 [which the UK is signed-up to], so as to take immediate control of all policy decision-making by forming a legitimate UN-sanctioned direct democracy with majority election and without revolution, in the UK.
The People's Administration's constitution for reform to direct democracy and our voting protocols 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!
