Daniel Hannan and Douglas Carswell are 'big' on direct democracy, in fact they have written quite a few pamphlets on the subject, whilst also publishing their 'tome', one entitled "The Plan".
If those two politicians really believe in that which they espouse, they surely will not be 'backward in coming forward' to endorse this - will they?
All things considered and bearing in mind that which they promote, how can they argue against:
"1. A Codified Constitution for the UK, based upon the Bill of Rights, the Magna Carta.....
2. To clearly define the limitations of Government.
Well, chaps............?3. To set out an Operating Convention for Government, based upon the Swiss model, including referism and localism. A model of government where decisions are taken at the lowest possible level and fed up, rather than from the center and fed down. This will also encourage the rise of independent representatives as the party system looses both its power and influence, as that power is reclaimed by the people to whom it belongs, the public."
