Direct Democracy proposal for Law - Family and Child Protection
Smoking to be banned in private vehicles and homes when children are present
The People's Administration believes that anything that knowingly causes any form of harm to children is abuse. Whether harm is brought to children through violence or smoking, we regard all forms to be abusive.
It is illegal in the home, car or anywhere, to harm children through violence, but a the same time it is not illegal to smoke around children when in these same environments. Is filling our children's lungs with passive smoke not harmful and therefore abusive?
We very strongly believe that passive smoking around children when in confined environments is conscious child abuse and therefore, Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose to outlaw smoking in cars and homes when children are present. We also believe that one of the strongest influences in encouraging children to smoke is actually seeing their parents smoke and so we wish to discourage this.
To anyone who may question the morality and/or practicality of implementing and policing such a law, we invite you to apply your questioning to current anti-child abuse laws regarding other forms of abuse.
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
