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.
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
