Direct Democracy proposal for IT, Communications and Data Protection

Review of mobile tariffs

Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose that the decision made by the former Labour Government Home Office regarding mobile tariffs be reversed in favour of the consumer and against the operator [as with the rest of Europe].

Every European government held its own negotiations with all of the mobile networks [in joint session] and our government was the only government in Europe to decide against protecting the consumer. It is worth noting that the minister directly involved [Hazel Blears] at the time held a position on the board of a major telecomms provider [BT] and also owns shares in that company.

Hazel Blears also used parliamentary assets to facilitate private meetings with BT - at the expense of the tax payer. The meetings were private and not work-related and so should not have happened during parliamentary work time or on parliamentary premises.

A text message containing 1000 letters [or characters including spaces] is the equivalent to 1K of data and could cost you around 20p to send.

1,000K = 1 Meg so, to send I Meg of data via text would cost you £200

1 Meg is approximate to sending 1/3 of an MP3 music single. This is approximate to a cost of £600 per MP3 that you send, if it could be sent as a text message.

To transfer an unlimited amount of data using the Internet costs you around £6 - £10 per month with most Internet Service Providers.

0845 'Local Rate' numbers costing 50p p/min. average.


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.

Follow: @self_rule

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
