About the People's Administration Direct Democracy Party
We are musicians, producers, artists and political activists [not politicians] who have registered our movement [the People's Administration] as a mainstream political party with the Electoral Commission [March 2010] so as to create the opportunity to legitimately implement a reform to direct democracy using the web and telephone in the UK.
The People's Administration believes that through the use of the web and telephony, [mis]representation in Parliament by politicians is no longer required and that with direct democracy, the UK would no longer be America's 51st state.

• Direct Democracy Flow Chart
• Voting for Direct Democracy in a general election
Politicians are not problem solvers. They are generally from a media or legal background and neither professions involve any degree of training in problem solving. It is engineers, technicians, scientists, philosophers, therapists, authors, artists, teachers, analysts and others who are natural problem solvers and, only direct democracy can allow for their ideas to become reality.
Without direct democracy, their ideas will remain oppressed.
If we are to be responsible citizens, how can we do this whilst refusing to take responsibility for the most fundamental decisions? Only direct democracy will enable full social responsibility.
We believe that social unity can only be achieved with direct democracy, where the UK electorate can create, propose and vote upon all policy implementation. We believe that people can only take responsibility for their country's actions in a direct democracy. We believe that the people can only have full control of every aspect of their lives in a direct democracy.
We believe that the youth do want to get political and do want to influence common law but, that they do not want to be dictated to by a what they perceive as being a corrupt dictatorial parliament, whilst having no influence themselves. Who would? We believe that this combination amounts to direct oppression of the youth and, that this can be influential in generating a cause for potential youth unrest and discontent. In our opinion, during the 1970's and 80's, anyone who voted for Margaret Thatcher empowered her to compromise the social cohesion of our communities in sake of an expanding [but short-term economy] yet these are also the same people who now complain about our communities being broken and "sick" and who call for the punishment of the victims of Thatcherism itself.
The People's Administration believes that a combination of corporate marketing, neglectful teaching, neglectful parenting, corrupt community 'leadership' and Thatcherism has corrupted and abused the youth for at least two generations:
• Corporate marketing messages that condition children into thinking that their worth comes only from their material status, whist inciting aggression via violent video games.
• Neglectful teaching that sees children leaving school without being able to read, write or articulate.
• Neglectful parenting from those who bred their future off-spring as commodities or 'stock' which which to secure various social benefits.
• Corrupt community 'leaders' who believe [as we do] that there has been a government-led propaganda programme since the 1960's to divide the people from the police, yet who say nothing of this to the youth for fear of damaging their personal reputations.
During March 2011, the PA founder [Alex Romane] attended talks with representatives of some of Birmingham's youth and community groups with a view to forming a Birmingham-wide unity campaign. Alex had emphasised how he believed that our failure to educate the youth on the relevant political issues could lead to much social unrest in the near future but, after members expressed concerns regarding sharing activities with the police, things started to go downhill. At the same time but during separate meetings, West Midlands Police had already assured Alex that any events held would be supported by them and, that they were even ready to donate venues and facilities along with cars, bikes and a helicopter for the children - all at their own expense and with officers attending during their own time. A few months after the meetings collapsed, Birmingham erupted and the riots started to go racial as well as anti-authoritarian and the so-called community 'leaders' were no where to be seen.
This culture of social inadequacy is maintained by successive governments with weak and/or corrupt leadership and old-school right-wing thinking - empowered by the electorate who chooses to vote for them, therefore maintaining the system of corrupt 'representative' democracy and social irresponsibility. In our opinion, certain aspects of UK society are responsible for wholesale child abuse and, whilst we seek methods with which to serve further rejection, we believe that it is rejection itself that needs to be countered. Put simply; the youth will always be part of society regardless of how they behave and so we believe that further punishment and rejection will only serve to cause more illness for all of society.
The riots of 2011 were not justified, but were reasonable. The youth allowed themselves to be played by government propaganda and so they perceived the police as the enemy [helped along by corruption, racism and a lack of unaccountability from the police]. It is our opinion that although there were many influential social and political factors that prompted these riots, it was still the individual choices made by each participant that started and maintained the riots. No one forced anyone to riot and rioters could have instead chosen to organise peaceful demonstrations against social neglect or even against the police. This would have achieved far more for them and, it would have potentially attracted the support of the public and the media instead of alienating them.
In the opinion of the government, the riots of 2011 were not justified and were not reasonable and were born only of reasons linked to criminal intent. David Cameron says that these youth are "sick", yet he wants to impose punishment and further isolation - not discipline, compassion and healing. The leadership of UK criminal gang culture is ran by adults [mostly over the age of thirty five years] who are playing the youth [who are vulnerable to the four main contributing elements of youth crime listed above] and so it is these people who would need to be targeted in any anti-gang campaigns - not the youth themselves.
David Cameron's choice of harsh revenge over compassionate discipline [of the youth he wanted to hug pre-general election 2010] is in complete contrast with his attitude towards criminal bankers and convicted criminal politicians. We believe that this blatant hypocrisy contributes towards the perception that the youth have developed towards the politicians, the corporations, the media, and now the emergency services.
5 months in jail for a single mother of two children who was given a pair of shorts by a looter when visiting her apartment - even though she herself was not involved in the riots or the looting at all? 8 years for getting over-excited on Facebook, when others serve less for causing death by dangerous driving and for rape? Obviously, threatening the state and its tax-dodging corporations is still a crime deemed worse than harming an individual citizen.
Ironically it is the police, sociologists, psychologists and counsellors who believe in a balance of compassion and punishment and do not believe that any solution will come from further isolation of the youth and in political arenas, it is the police who now defend the same youths who targeted them as the 'enemy'.
In the opinion of the rioting youths, the riots were justified but, they themselves can not articulate the reasons for why. We believe that this is why they perceive their own actions as being a protest and not a riot. It was a form of spontaneous expression and if we misread it and punish it, we will all pay a much higher price in the future.
Margaret Thatcher was closer to Rupert Murdoch than any other previous Prime Minister and we believe that their joint contribution led to the birth of a culture that chose selfishness over compassion and greed over sharing, and that became conditioned into despising claimants of Welfare benefits - even though the Welfare State is funded by those who use it.
We believe that the youth of the riots in 2011 are the real children of Thatcher because, it was her ideology that they were enacting. In our opinion, Tony Blair and David Cameron are both the true sons of Thatcher and by voting for either, the electorate has been voting for irresponsibility and for an on-going increase in divisions within our communities and this is why nothing has really changed since Thatcher.
The People's Administration believes that all governments since Thatcher have gradually and quietly shifted the response/community ratio of the work load of all three emergency services so that we only see them when they are responding and never in a community role. When did you last see the police, ambulance or fire service coming into your child's school? This stopped when Thatcher took milk away from children and we believe that all of this is representative of Conservative thinking towards the vulnerable.
Along-side this, the ratio of television exposure given between police response work and police community work [both fictional and non-fiction] has shifted so much towards response programming while at the same time, Whitehall directives restrict the police from funding any community work - ensuring that on or off-screen, we mostly see the police only in response mode and, the People's Administration believes that this is a fundamental propaganda tool that the state is uses in order to alienate the police from the people.
We believe that there has been an on-going conspiracy behind Whitehall [now involving Rupert Murdoch's media and hidden groups of varying nature] that has been influencing successive governments [via policy formation] since Harold Wilson took office. This is a theory shared by many reputable individuals and organisations [including high-ranking members of the emergency services] and, we believe that this conspiracy is oriented in dividing communities and alienating the emergency services so that they can be used as a cushion to protect governments [as what happened in 2011] when these governments over-exert their control and oppression.
We believe that UK governments have been consciously dividing communities simply to increase their control [something that was learned during the formation of the British Empire] and we believe that Rupert Murdoch himself has been instrumental in this process [for his own commercial and political gain]. If you ever see the police performing community-related work, it will only be because those particular officers have chosen to give up their own time outside of work hours so as to connect with their own communities.
It is during the Thatcher era that Parliament as an institution became wholly non-representative of the UK people, instead favouring to support the desires of the media, the religions, the unelected lords and consultants [such as multi-millionaire Alan Sugar], the corporates, the banks, the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers and hidden organisations [shadow governments]. This is the essence of Thatcherism and it's still with us today, maintained and enhanced by both Tony Blair and David Cameron.
It should be highlighted that the founder of the People's Administration was himself a victim of a serious police conspiracy during 1999 - 2000 which was successfully resolved through a series of closed court hearings and so was not publicised but despite this, he still believes that as with any institution, there will be those who maintain their integrity as well as those who are weak and corrupt.
We believe that communities have slowly been conditioned to view the emergency services as the 'enemy' and, in not questioning our own thoughts, feelings and conditioning, we have allowed ourselves to be played by those who now serve only a corrupt but rich minority. Direct Democracy via the People's Administration is the only current legitimate proposal for self-rule, wholesale political reform and true social unity. If you believe in having full control of every aspect of your life - vote for direct democracy Now!
The People's Administration believes that the people are frustrated with the childish, embarrassing and regressive culture of British politics and of Parliament. We believe that the people wish for politicians to have integrity and to be working together to find solutions on our behalf instead of warring against each other so as to retain personal status and power.
However, it is not within the nature of UK partisan political parties to be able to work with each other [as Peter Mandleson himself admitted on the morning after polling day 2010]. We believe that the new hung parliament will demonstrate this disability and, it is also our belief that removing the ability to make decisions regarding policy implementation through the implementation of direct democracy, will remove the effects caused by these parties not being able to work together.
A hung parliament can though equip Whitehall with the experience of working with all parties and, of identifying the commonalities of various party members regarding policy formation. The hung parliament could also be an opportunity for politicians to start to formulate cross-party working protocols with each other - all in preparation for true and direct democracy.
If the coalition is productive, this would demonstrate that cross-party cohesion is viable. If the coalition is non-productive, this would demonstrate that there is no cohesion. Either way, all possible scenarios will promote a reform to direct democracy via the web and phone. The parliamentary and election reforms that some parties are now wanting to implement do not involve using the web to adapt and modernise by replacing the polling station and, they do not involve handing decision-making ability to the people. Only a reform to direct democracy can do this.
As the parties move more to the centre and the extremes so as to maintain appeal with a socially evolving UK public, they will lose their identity and connection to their roots and therefore, will not represent anything other than their leadership's own political aspirations. How can change be delivered by a party that represents the opposite - conservatism? How can labour's roots-socialism be promoted when they need to support capitalist business structures that maximise instead of optimise?
This is the beginning of the transition from partisan politics to people politics and it's happening now. This is the start of the evolutionary path of so-called 'representative' democracy transforming into direct democracy through the people and by the majority will of the people. It is not merely the result of politicians falling out of favour with the electorate through their abusive behaviour.
The basis of our reform to direct democracy is about all policy-making responsibility being transferred from all ministers and politicians to the people via an on-line voting system. Therefore, the People's Administration will not need more members because current ministers and politicians from all parties and the people, will be working together through the administration which will be managed by a Chief Administrator and not a Prime Minister. This reform intends to change the role of all current ministers and politicians into that of administrators - who will act only upon the majority will of the people - expressed via the web.
Under the People's Administration, party structures will have less and less relevance as we move from centralisation and partisan politics to direct democracy and people politics and so in principal, Alex is opposed to the establishment of another party but, he sees no other way of creating a realistic opportunity to legitimately and peacefully install direct democracy and, he believes that we need this option now.
We are all born with free will - the ability to make choices [freedom]. If during our lives we choose to limit its use, then it is us who restricts our own freedom and in-turn, our power. Up until the point of death, no one can compromise our freedom without us in some way choosing to let them do so. We can choose right now to exercise the freedom and power that we already have, by voting for the People's Administration and direct democracy or, we can continue to choose to be controlled by a corrupt minority and to suffer the consequences of not taking responsibility.
Choosing not to vote for direct democracy when we now have the opportunity, is to choose to never again complain about any aspect of any government, as they are only able to govern our lives because we empower them to do so.
Alex Romane is an Urban Dance music producer who co-wrote and co-produced Delirious [the world's first ever Drum and Bass album]. He has also worked outside of the music industry intermittently and has had a varied career history living and working in various parts of the UK but, he has also had periods of unemployment and homelessness. Alex was born in London of English, Greek, Irish and Scottish heritage and within education, Alex studied to GCSE level in a state comprehensive and then acquired additional qualifications in Computer Science and Micro Electronics and a diploma in Psycho Acoustic Music Production during further education but, he is not university educated.
Alex's political activism started in 1999 and has so far involved authoring documents [published by the world-renowned British Library] regarding Political Architecture and Religious Theory, previously working directly with David Cameron and his team [independently], working on the Mid-East Peace Process directly with the Palestinian Authority, creating a potential £2 BN aid package for Somalia, forecasting and trying to prevent the UK riots, creating government-adopted policies, creating a potential solution for rising sea levels and diminishing water stocks [with TV presenter and inventor Trevor Baylis] and creating sustainable solutions for the economy and for democracy itself.
Contrary to a heavily propagandist and highly deceitful article published by the Trinity Mirror group in 2010, Alex did NOT establish the People's Administration after being "inspired by disgust at the self-serving actions of MP's, lobbyists and big business." Alex didn't express any sentiment regarding this issue and neither was Alex even interviewed by Trinity Mirror in the first place. The People's Administration party for reform to direct democracy was formed in 2010 only after various organisations, politicians and party leaders [including David Cameron] with whom Alex has met and worked with offering independent voluntary policy consultation, rejected fundamental key policy ideas without further discussion or exposure to others, despite them being known to have over a 90% approval rate when put to voter groups by Alex.
Independent candidates can not form a government after winning a general election but parties can so, this has meant that in order for Alex to let the people know of these ideas and for the people to have the opportunity to install true and direct democracy, he chose to form a new political party - the People's Administration. Because of this, not only can you learn about the People's Administration and direct democracy, but you will now also be able to actually vote for a reform to direct democracy by voting for the People's Administration in the next UK general election or, by voting now to invoke UNDHR Article 21 and Article 61 of the Magna Carta [which the UK is signed-up to].
Alex's Romane's base philosophy:
• As programmes that form a two-tier strategy of control, centralised partisan political systems seek to oppress true expression of the mind while religious systems seek to oppress true expression of the soul. Between them, they keep us separate from each other and separate from the truth of the nature of a God who created everything.
• Democracy is 'rule of the people' and until there is the rule of the people, there is no democracy.
• Representative democracy [representative rule of the people] is an illusion because while we do have the rule of representatives, we do not have any rule of the people.
• Freedom is the ability to make choices.
• Power is the ability to broaden your choices through influencing people. Money is not power. Money enables for the ability to make more choices but can never be used to control others without others somehow choosing to be controlled.
• Reality is the sum of all that can be measured. Your reality is the sum of all that you yourself can measure.
• Revolution is the result of oppressed evolution expressing itself and this often involves violence but, true and efficient evolution has no use for violence. Revolutions are won by those who use the most force because in a revolution there is no election. Evolution involves people actually choosing to advance their systems.
• There are no such things as wrong, right and facts - these are merely perception-oriented opinions.
• Everything we think we know is simply a belief, based upon a belief, based upon a belief.
• There are no such things as random, luck and coincidence - everything happens for a reason due to cause and effect.
• There is no such thing as 'society' but, there is every such thing as community.
• About the chicken and the egg; the egg came first because an egg can evolve into a chicken and, whilst a chicken can produce an egg, it can not itself evolve into an egg. Chronologically, evolution goes forward and so however it came into existence, the egg must have existed first. In short; an egg can become a chicken but a chicken can not become an egg.
"About 6 months into production of a new Drum and Bass album in 1999 - some of it featuring MC Robbie D, something happened in my personal life and outside of music that absolutely devastated me. I became deeply affected and extremely ill and it is this event that led me into political activism. I made a choice to not turn away and to fight those behind what had happened and so anything to do with music production was suddenly not part of my life and I was instead launching 3 concurrent court cases - one which involved successfully over-turning a police conspiracy. In response to what happened and also to an unrelated incident in early 2001 where an internet child protection strategy I was developing was blocked by the state for "political reasons" until the FBI picked-up on it and ran it in 2003, I established a political movement and authored a book which is published by the British Library. The government has a non-disclosure order in-place preventing me from disclosing the full details of what happened in 1999 and so without direct democracy - democracy meaning rule of the people, the police enforce the laws of the UK Parliament - not the laws of the UK people, and UK armed forces fight for Queen & Government - not Queen & Country. Through my activism and since working independently with David Cameron and others in 2009 on social, environmental and child welfare issues and then publicly campaigning against him since 2010 through the PA, mainstream media black-outs and propaganda regarding anything I do in music and politics have been a fact of life.
I'm still dealing with issues on various levels that relate to what happened in 1999 and I'm far from being in the best place for any public activity but, I truly believe that if the UK people choose to let those psychopathic, paedophile-protecting, child abusing, self-serving Rothschild subordinates who occupy Parliament continue with their past voting patterns for just another 5 years, that humans will be extinct by 2035-2040 because the decisions that Parliament will make in 2015 alone will have irreversible consequences for the entire world - especially with regards to the natural environment and war.
If I didn't believe this, I wouldn't be rushing to promote direct democracy and everyone could carry on living happily ever after in Cameron and the BBC's world of bulls**t. It amazes me that after working with him and, with my history of political activism which includes working directly with the Palestinians - a risk to any Westerner's media career, that some people don't see why Cameron and the BBC need to deny my influence and therefore my existence."
"If I'm wrong about 2015 then no harm done but it's not something I'm prepared to gamble on or to leave to politicians and unlike other cultures, not being politically and socially considerate means that most people in the UK don't realise how the UK Parliament has influence in over 90% of the world's countries either politically, militarily or culturally and therefore, that they alone can change the world. They don't know that the US war machine is fuelled by BP and therefore that the US and UK can go to war together even without a UK Parliamentary vote to support it and, with no understanding of NATO politics, they believe that Russia invaded Ukraine just because the BBC said so and, despite it never publishing a single image of a single Russian troop in Ukraine. This is extremely dangerous because it confirms that the UK people are now so brainwashed that they are prepared to take what the BBC and others say in words alone as fact, without seeing or even demanding to see any evidence - it's Cameron's dream scenario and it will serve him well in the run-up to the general election in 2015.
Brits who watch global news channels and who know a bit of geography are fully aware that Ukraine was not invaded by Russia and that East Crimea [a semi-autonomous, Russian-cultured state with its own UN-sanctioned parliament and elected members] was experiencing persecution and social cleansing from the Western-backed armed minority coup 'government' based in Kiev. They also know that the previously elected Ukraine Government made a last-minute u-turn in its decision to join the EU and was suddenly looking towards Russia and that this was unacceptable to the West and, that this was why the US hatched a plan [involving EU 'leaders'] to topple the elected Ukraine Government."
"In absolute desperation and only after being abandoned by the West, East Crimeans invited Russia in so as to defend it against the illegal minority armed coup 'government' [installed by the West in Kiev] and its militias. As this happened, the people of East Crimea held a vote for self-determination and voted to become part of Russia and in utter hypocrisy, it is this independent vote for self-determination that Cameron says is illegal and refuses to recognise - while supporting the armed minority coup government in Kiev. Put simply; Russia was invited in to Crimea but after Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, I guess that Cameron and Obama don't understand what an invite is? Also during this time, Venice voted ON-LINE to become independent from Rome but the faithful BBC said f**k-all about it!
When Kosovo wanted independence from Serbia, NATO bombed Serbia to bits and killed over 500 civilians and Kosovo didn't even have a vote for self-determination so, when Obama talks of the Kosovan vote for independence, that Rockefeller-serving hypocrite demonstrates that he is completely uneducated about the facts of modern European history and, that he doesn't even question his speech writers and simply reads what ever they write - as with all US presidents.
Fundamentally, all Western arguments against Russia regarding its invited intervention in Crimea completely dismiss the West-backed illegal armed minority coup over-throw of the formerly majority-elected Ukrainian government - an international crime that the UN also seems only to happy to ignore and, the crime that started this conflict in the first place.
The people of self-titled 'Great' Britain believe that the biggest threat to their way of life is immigration when it's actually environmental catastrophe, war, over-population and then terrorism and motivated by spite, they have freely chosen to play the Conservative's old game of hating anyone who claims JSA, ESA and Income Support, even though these people combined only cost 14% of the welfare budget - leaving voting pensioners to have 48% without any means-testing. It's blatant social cleansing happening in the UK and through ATOS, Cameron has so-far murdered approx. 20,000 vulnerable UK citizens who were claiming Incapacity Benefit. The sheeple think that 41% of the entire welfare budget goes on JSA while the true figure is only 3% and, they think that 27% of the welfare budget is claimed fraudulently while the government's own figure is only 0.7% and by the way, Amazon and the others actually only pay 0.1% tax - not 1%. The sick joke is that tax payers who attack the vulnerable are funding criminal banks, Cameron's Syrian FSA child rape fatwa and, India's forced child sterilisation programme - even though every UK tax payer has had the legal right since 1215 to withhold tax payments if they feel the government is abusing their money. Want to talk about British 'values'? There you go.
Through that supporter of brutal oil-rich, weapons-buying dictatorships and since 2012, the UK tax payer has been funding the FSA, Al'Qaeda and ISIS in Syria while MI6 has been training them to fight - creating a domestic head f**k for MI5 and, being that Al'Qaeda and ISIS now openly threaten the UK, the UK people will reap from their political ignorance and from Cameron and MI6's betrayal because along with Obama, EU 'leaders' and the religious 'leaders', their actions are the root cause of all religious-oriented terrorism. Re-shaping Western foreign policy while showing the extremists who kill "for the sake of God" how God does not require for them to kill is the solution but while the UK people insist upon shirking their political and social responsibilities - instead choosing to leave these to a corrupt minority, people all over the world will continue to suffer and, the people of the world have more in common with each other than with their own 'leaders' but with these freely-elected psychopaths in the way, the world's people can not unite."

"While the UK government secretly cultivates Opium, a multi-purpose plant that produces food, fibre and medicine that can halt HIV, cancer and Alzheimer's and, that can also end deforestation and save the world has been outlawed as a 'drug' and while the UK debates the 'morals' of using one of God's most amazing gifts, the Chinese are rushing to patent as many varieties as they can and if the UK people ever awaken from their BBC, Coronation Street, celebrity sex and alcohol-induced comas, it will be too late to benefit without breaking international patent laws and entering into a trade war with China - which we can't afford and will therefore lose. Through human-assisted extinction brought-on by environmental abuse, we're losing 50,000 species of animal and plant every year while destroying the equivalent of 7 football pitches of forest every minute of every day - we've already destroyed or degraded 80% of the world's rainforests and decisions taken by so-called 'representatives' and religious 'leaders' over the last 40 years have increased the rate of damage - not prevented it. The religions, Thatcher, Blair and Monsanto-loving Cameron have betrayed the people left, right and centre and pathetically, the people continue the cycle of freely giving these traitors their power and then protesting about it after, which is exactly what Cameron wants. To betray non-representative governments so as to protect the people is to be a patriot and in law, this is exactly why the UK tax payer has the legal right to withhold tax payments at any time.
While conforming protesters get busy changing nothing, a newly-discovered methane-oriented extinction level event that Cameron and the BBC mention nothing about is already underway. Due to the on-going mainstream media black-outs since 2010 coupled with refusals from celeb friends and contacts to endorse the PA for fear of damaging their BBC exposure, I now have no other way of trying to break through other than with a new album because the only other option at this stage is to quit and I'll be dead before I ever choose to quit fighting Cameron, Blair, those b******s in the US Senate, and the manipulative shadow governments that they've sold themselves to. With an extinction rate of 50,000 species per year and when all food and medicine derives from animals and plants, it is obvious that humans will not survive even if climate change wasn't occurring. If we continue with our current attitude and behaviour, this planet will soon be rid of the ONLY species that is destroying it and, it is no coincidence that humans are the ONLY social group species on this planet not to use direct democracy. Denied by the religions who lie about the nature of God, direct democracy is God's way of doing politics and as with everything else within nature [such as Eco Capitalism], it works.
I hate politics but since the late 1980's, I've been very concerned about how all of the world's political systems are intentionally destroying any notion of democracy - especially when it's just for the sake of finance. Since the event in 1999, the combination of government non-disclosure orders regarding various political actions I've taken and press blocks regarding anything else has meant that I've been fighting in the background and in isolation. I've had George Galloway shouting at me in the street to "Stay out of politics!" and I've been similarly threatened by other elected MPs too and a few years ago, the US State Department tried to intimidate me directly through one of my Twitter blogs. It's obvious that direct democracy is a massive threat to the global elite and their personal attacks and media blackouts just confirm this to me."
Alex believes that nothing is ever stopping any individual politician from any party from bringing direct democracy themselves. Even if done individually on politician's own websites, politicians could still gain insight into public opinion regarding policy implementation. However, during a televised experiment, it was discovered that even if the electorate could voice their opinions regarding policies directly on politician's own websites, that politicians would still prioritise their own interests above those of the majority when it comes to voting on policies in Parliament and, would consciously choose NOT to represent their electors.
MP Anne Widdecombe stated that she would "never let majority public opinion voiced on my website influence my parliamentary votes and I would never let voters make decisions upon policy implementation." Before realising who he was talking with, MP George Galloway told the PA founder directly that "Direct democracy is the best way for the country to go!" adding "You could get rid of all us lot too." confirming that we can have what hypocritical politicians admit is best for us but, only when it doesn't compromise what's best for them.
The only MP to recognise and to publicly call for TRUE direct democracy [and not just public particpation] is Labour's Kevin Brennan who in 2012, told a Hansard Society event at Westminster that; "Technologically it is now possible. We could function as a direct democracy. The cost of obtaining people's views on a range of different subjects is miniscule compared to any other time in history, unless you go back to ancient Greece when you just gathered in the market place and you could have a direct vote on things."
When voting on the issue of UK military intervention in Syria [Aug. 2013], only 44% of MPs voted against it while acknowledging that public opinion was approx. 80% against and, 14% of MPs who couldn't be bothered to represent their voters abstained. Generally, 40% of MPs say that they have no power because they have to vote in alignment with their party 'leader' but if this group of MPs had voted to represent the public, it is no coincidence that the parliamentary vote would have been approx. 80% against - in alignment with public opinion.
However, even when MPs do remember their sworn duty to represent their voters, it is considered a rebellion if they vote out of alignment with their party 'leader'. On the 30th January 2014 and after a slapping-down by David Cameron, so-called 'pro-direct democracy' Tory Douglas Carswell announced that he will "never rebel again." while party colleague Anne McIntosh announced that she would run as an independent but, she announced this only AFTER being sacked by her local Tory office [for 'rebelling'], confirming that Parliamentary parties DO NOT represent you.
All of this demonstrates that MPs are victims of their own power - acquired through defunct political architecture which rewards those who consciously choose NOT to represent you and so, direct democracy will enable full and direct representation.
Even if they were willing to represent, elected politicians are in the minority within the UK Parliament which consists of 650 elected members [House of Commons] + 830 unelected peers and bishops [House of Lords] and so, the UK is not a representative democracy by any measure and is actually the only remaining theocracy in the Western world.
Another example of this is with Coalition Deputy Nick Clegg who does actually encourage people to email their opinions and ideas - as if he himself is going to be able to find the time to read them all on a daily basis, before making his own decisions regardless of majority opinion.
The Conservative's attempt at distorting the definition of direct democracy is ran by 'representative' MPs Douglas Carswell [douglascarswell.com] and Zac Goldsmith [zacgoldsmith.com] and in our opinion, it is simply a propagandist attempt at misleading the electorate so that the 'threat' of genuine direct democracy never materialises.
All of this further demonstrates how even representative democracy isn't representative and, isn't democratic either because your opinions will be ignored - even if shared by the majority.
We do not believe that another politician or government with more old-school thinking and dictat is what the country needs any longer. We believe that the country needs direct democracy now!
The fundamental reason for why the ancient Greek civilisation [the creators of Democracy] was so advanced in its thinking was because thinking was not centralised. Without centralised thinking and politics, the Greeks were able to be free in their thinking because there wasn't anyone telling them how to think. Decentralising our political system will decentralise our thinking and therefore, enable for more creative thought and creative solutions to be found for today's issues.
We believe that the basis for how this works is rooted in the ability of animals that live in social groups to communicate and understand their reality and this philosophy is also accepted by many scientists and philosophers including C. Jung [The Vast Subconscious], Lyall Watson [Supernature] and Rupert Sheldrake [Morphic Fields].
In early 2012, scientists discovered that ants and bees specifically use direct democracy and furthermore, they apportion their use of direct democracy as being fundamental to their efficiency and overall survival. In the words of the UK scientists that carried out tests on ants; "The colony's use of direct democracy greatly enhances its survival because it decentralises the decision-making which increases its ability to find better solutions faster."
As an experiment, we suggest that you gather a group of friends together around a jar of beans. Take note of everyone's guess as to the quantity of beans in the jar. Total-up everyone's guess and divide it by the number of people in the group [establishing the average guess]. After counting the beans, notice that the group will have seemed to have known [to within a very close margin] the accurate quantity of beans in the jar.
We believe that many solutions to social, industrial, economic and environmental problems that current politicians perceive as being alternative, should actually be adopted as mainstream and as soon as possible. We believe that the old style of thought currently held by most politicians can no longer provide solutions for today's society and we believe that society is now being held-back by such thinking. We believe that the thinking needs to evolve by setting aside moral, religious and personal judgements and perceptions in place of a more logic-based approach that considers practicality, scientific conclusions and the rights of personal choice over morals, control and the will to punish and, we do not see how this can ever happen without direct democracy.
For example, David Cameron himself says that he is not a man of ideology - implying that he is a realist. For all of his experience, he has not seen that all of what we call reality was at one time just a thought, ideal or dream. Even the simple light bulb was at one time just an idea. The idea evolved into reality through self-determination and practical application so therefore, if we want to change our reality then we need to change our thinking.
Reality is simply; the sum of all that can be measured by your senses [physical or other]. Your reality is; the sum of all that you yourself can measure. If something can be measured [by any means], then it exists!
Ideals are not in conflict with reality - they are the creative source of ALL reality. Reality is thoughts, ideals and dreams real-ised so, if we elect leaders that have little or no ideology, then the thinking and solutions will remain restricted, limited and inappropriate. Some believe that it is only an ideal to think that we can change the world, yet it is the choices that we all make in every moment of our lives that are constantly changing and shaping the world. Some believe that direct democracy and self-rule are only ideals, yet if we make the choice to implement direct democracy through the People's Administration, it can become part of our reality because all of the components needed to make it work are now in existence.
With regards to governmental economic thinking, the centralised globalised capitalist system requires that in order for businesses to survive, they must minimise costs, maximise profits and forever increase their profit margins so as to forever expand. In our opinion, these are not necessary components of a successful business or of capitalism itself and, they can actually be extremely restrictive making businesses inflexible and therefore vulnerable [as with the banks for example].
The English work 'ethic' and corporate capitalist maximisation has ensured that the UK has the longest and hardest working hours in Europe, whilst being one of the least productive countries in Europe.
Within a direct democracy, a decentralised economy where businesses draw upon their local resources, use digital internal processes with digital marketing methods, focus on sustaining a profit [not on expanding profits] and are regulated by localised social justice [as opposed to centralised government regulation], will be the businesses that thrive and re-start a reformed UK economy.
The answers to most, if not all questions about anything can be found through studying nature. Nature never maximises but instead always optimises. For example; plants never consume more energy or space than they need yet they survive, grow and hopefully live to fulfil their purpose. Nature makes the smartest use of what is already naturally available to it, not the biggest use. We believe that the UK economy will be best served if we base our economy upon our natural environment and copy the behavioural elements within it by translating them into business models and, by adapting the current capitalist model so that it is based upon optimising - not maximising.
At the same time, our environment will automatically become prioritised along with our economy and both will thrive. Simply planting a seed and maintaining its growth through to it becoming an edible food is capitalism - and it's fair and it's sustainable if we optimise instead of maximise!
We call this Eco-Capitalism.
It is no coincidence that our global economy is collapsing at the same time as our global environment. Direct Democracy may now be the only tool that could save the economy.
With regards to governmental social thinking, is it any wonder that crime continues to rise when every incoming Home Office minister [of any government] is always told by the permanent Home Office secretaries [unelected civil servants], that crime will always rise and nothing will ever change this? If this is what they have always believed, then it is no wonder that the thinking behind the solutions is restricted - failing to make a noticeable difference.
This restricted belief system could actually be the main contributing factor towards rising crime - maybe even more contributory than the acts of criminals themselves! Internal Home Office thinking has created a negative self-fulfilling prophecy and, if ministers themselves do not believe that crime rates can fall, then they never will fall.
With regards to governmental environmental thinking, we believe that the Green Alliance's and Prince Charles's assessment of 5 years [stated in 2010] being how much time the world has remaining with which to adopt measures to stave off the point of no return is correct. Therefore, we do not believe that we have time to let yet another old-style government with limited thinking take control again. Current politicians regard many potential solutions as being too alternative and, we believe that they are scared to risk their positions and power in promoting such ideas to the people and, we do not believe that this is beneficial to us or the environment. Direct democracy may now be the only tool that could save the environment.
For example, a policy proposed directly to David Cameron and his team by Alex in mid-2010 to cultivate hemp bio fuel, food, medicine, fabric and paper pulp crops in the UK has been rejected as being too controversial - regardless of the potential benefits to the environment and to the economy and despite the policy not including the legalisation of hemp growing or its use/abuse, but merely the mass-licensed cultivation of hemp by UK farmers. At the time, we were told that they did wish to pursue the policy but with other crop types but, they wouldn't disclose what crop types. We've since discovered that the UK now secretly grows opium and that the BBC and the ALL other UK mainstream media agencies decided that this wasn't important enough for you to know about and, we also know that they weren't legally prevented from reporting about it either.
Evidence of global medicinal use of hemp dates back to 2700 BC and, hemp is now recognised as having medicinal properties that can assist in fighting against the development of the following conditions:
• Alzheimer's disease
• Lung cancer and chronic pulmonary disease
• Breast cancer
• Brain cancer
• Opioid dependence
• Spasticity in multiple sclerosis
Evidence of this is supported by the following institutions - all are campaigning for legal access for patients:
• The American Medical Association
• The American College of Physicians [America's second largest physicians group]
• Leukemia and Lymphoma Society [America's second largest cancer charity]
• American Academy of Family Physicians
• American Alliance for Medical Cannabis
• American Public Health Association
• American Psychiatric Association
• American Nurses Association
• British Medical Association
• AIDS Action
• American Academy of HIV Medicine
• Lymphoma Foundation of America
• Health Canada
British government scientists have themselves in recent years discovered that hemp also has a property that literally cures psychosis, whilst acknowledging that another property [THC] can sometimes actually cause psychosis.
David Cameron and all other politicians ignore all of the above findings when they say that cannabis will remain illegal because "It is bad for your health." Cannabis has never been criminalised anywhere in the world on health grounds confirming that David Cameron is either stupid, a liar, or both, as it has only ever been criminalised for private corporate gain [particularly to the benefit of US companies who paid the US government to outlaw the mass cultivation and use of cannabis in the early 1900's]. Up until this point, it was illegal for US farmers NOT to grow it, as it was so central to the US economy.
Another policy explained in-person to David by Alex was a proposal to include interactive learning-based schemes in the national curriculum that teach children the value of a healthy local natural environment has also been rejected without explanation - despite the success of pilots in Birmingham and of there being little or no additional cost requirements to implement these schemes nationally and, almost over-night.
Another proposal was a policy to address the BBC licensing issue for the long-term. This has also been rejected in favour of a policy to let the licence payer have a year for free. In our opinion, this will reduce BBC revenue without leaving it the option to replace this revenue elsewhere, which could be extremely damaging to the BBC and, it was also only a short-term solution offered in the run-up to a general election so we question the motives of such a short-term proposal as well as its viability.
Regarding the issue of accidentally-imported Japanese Knot Weed, the previous Labour government had decided to import and introduce a predator bug that eats only knot weed. No forethought has been given to how our ecosystem will be affected when these bugs adapt to survive as the knot weed diminishes. The government scientists have missed that there is a simple tried and tested natural solution that involves only the use of hands and this in itself, could have been a great community-led initiative across the country leading to increased social cohesion at local community level whilst encouraging people to get actively involved with nature.
Just as with our economy, the previous Labour government insisted upon contributing to ruining our environment also - whilst claiming to be rescuing it.
The new so-called 'environmentally-friendly' coalition is not even bothered enough to look into reversing this policy and, they seem incapable of learning from the mistakes of past governments [Mixomatosis with rabbits] and this attitude is detrimental to all of us.
As certain people don't want to let you know about reform to direct democracy or to even discuss it, it became our choice to either give up, or to let the people know about this potential reform in other way.
"One of my life-long ambitions was to develop a potential transition to direct democracy and, to put pressure on those in various positions to implement it. The establishment of the People's Administration was not envisaged until early 2010. I've made my choice and now it's your turn - are we ready to take full responsibility for our lives and for how we affect others? If we're not, what rights do we have in telling others how they should live? In a direct democracy, the people are the ones who will make all of the decisions and the People's Administration and a reformed Parliament will then implement them on your behalf."
With direct democracy and without centralised decision-making, the politicians, the media, the religions, the unelected lords and consultants [such as multi-millionaire Alan Sugar], the corporates, the banks, the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers and hidden organisations [shadow governments] of any nature can not manipulate the power any longer, as the power will be with every individual.
We believe that voter-turnout would be massively increased if the electorate actually knew that their voice would be listened to and, even more so if voters knew that their own ideas could potentially become policy. Alex has never believed that complacency has played any part in a low voter turnout, but rather that lack of faith, trust and confidence in a largely undemocratic and out-dated Parliament is mostly to blame for this.
In the 2005 UK General Election, only 40% of the eligible electorate cast a vote. This means that the government was elected by the minority who did vote and, policy implementation is then decided by another minority group - Parliament. In our opinion, this was a dictatorship that governed in law, but not in principal, as it is the principals of democracy that have been compromised. If the 45% who didn't vote in the 2010 general election vote for the People's Administration and direct democracy, we would win the next general election with a landslide victory.
If you are considering not voting, spoiling your vote in protest or voting for 'None of the above', then why not make your vote stand for reform, direct democracy and people politics by voting for the People's Administration?
This reform is not Communism, Proportional Representation, Marxism in any form. This proposal is truly democratic as it is about re-awakening the realisation of power for the majority - it is not about controlling and redistributing wealth or any other aspect of life. True and direct democracy has no one person, party or organisation controlling it so there will be no centralisation of power, as the power will be redistributed to the people.
By voting for the People's Administration and direct democracy, the people would be voting to have all power over all policy implementation at local and national level. This would be a seamless transition from party politics to people politics without revolution, where the people vote upon all policies and Parliament then implements those policies on behalf of the people.
How could any politician deny the people the chance to decide how we will all live, and then claim to be working in our best democratic interests? If any did, it would clearly demonstrate that they do have their own agenda for power and control over others.
Be careful not to buy into the notion that politicians did all that they could to rectify the expenses scandal. Both Gordon Brown and David Cameron had for years, continually blocked previous motions proposed by the Liberal Democrats to self-audit their own members and to reform outdated and undemocratic parliamentary procedures. We feel that this shows how they tried to protect their friends and, it shows how they then removed this protection when they needed it for themselves as the scandal became public.
We would like to highlight to you that the primary response from the leader of Parliament in reaction to the leak of information to the press, was to spend more public money hunting down the person who leaked the information - all on the basis that a crime had been committed.
Again, they were so concerned with protecting themselves that they didn't even realise how this would be perceived by the people. Further public funds were also spent by the leader of the house to try to stop further information from being released - to us, the people.
Last time we checked - it was a crime to steal! They have lied to the people and stolen from the people and unbelievably, it now looks like returning the money and resigning their posts are enough. Some politicians who were prosecuted even invoked their parliamentary 'right' to immunity - highlighting the total lack of integrity and contempt for the electorate that these politicians have for us.
Gordon Brown, Nick Clegg and David Cameron said that they were being realists and honest when they told us what we didn't want to hear; that repairing the economy is going to hurt. In our opinion, they used this as an opportunity to look strong because what they are still too week and scared to tell you is what you really do not want to hear; that to repair the economy we need to repair the environment and that this will hurt even more.
When deciding what countries will produce and sell certain goods, globalisation is more influenced by political relationships than by ecology. Globalisation pays little or no regards to each country's ecology and what each county's natural environment is best capable of producing. When economies become separate and disconnected from their natural environmental strengths, economies weaken.
What you really don't want to hear is that; to strengthen our economy, we must also prioritise and invest in our natural environment immediately. Without a functioning natural environment, we will have no functioning economy and human life will eventually cease to exist. What good is a functioning economy if there is no one alive?
What you really don't want to hear is that; the biggest current threat to human life is the state of our environment - not the state of our economies.
What they don't want you to hear is that; globalisation based upon politics will not work, that the master plan to control every aspect of our lives is flawed, that it has a fundamental root-weakness that actually threatens the prosperity of every nation on the planet.
It is no coincidence that companies that operate environmentally friendly, digitally-oriented practices save money and become more financially efficient. In our opinion, we have no more than the next five years to balance the two and put them back into harmony with each other before we reach the point of no return.
UK voters traditionally prioritise the economy. If this happens in the next UK general election, then it may be too late to turn around our environmental problems because of the limited and selfish thinking within the current parties.
If the UK voter prioritises the environment alongside the economy by voting for direct democracy via the People's Administration, then we will certainly have a chance.
This is an opportunity to say that enough is enough and that we now want to take full control and responsibility. Are these really the sort of people that we should continue to hand over control of our lives to? Do we really still want to be represented by these people?
We are all educated enough to decide upon our own destiny. Making a decision on how we want to live is not a decision for 'experts' or corrupt politicians - it is a decision for the people, as we are all the experts in this field.
Within a direct democracy, the differing perspectives of each current political party could inform us about any potential benefits and/or losses of implementing any policies, when policies are put to the people for a potential national vote.
Our reform to direct democracy would give the people the opportunity to become fully responsible for their country's actions. At present, we reap what other's sew in our name whether we agree with these people or not. For example; through inappropriate and unpopular foreign policies, we and those of other nations are all paying the price in many ways for the decisions of a minority who abuse our armed forces and send our soldiers to war ill-equipped and in corrupt wars. These wars are never about installing 'democracies' as we are told that they are or we would be fighting in many of the world's countries including Tibet, Sudan and Palestine, and not just the countries whose resources we wish to plunder.
Our own 'democracy' is merely representative and, it doesn't even work at the most fundamental levels. This was demonstrated in the last general election when hundreds of voters across the UK were denied their right to vote due to nothing more than beaurocracy.
These 'mistakes' would not have been possible if voting by web had replaced the expensive and inconvenient method of voting via poorly-managed polling stations.
If there were no oil resources in the Malvinas Islands [Falklands Islands], do you really think that we would still try to somehow claim that these islands that lie almost 8,000 miles away 'belong' to the UK? We talk of being a peace-loving and tolerant nation whilst launching wars in foreign lands and denying the Argentine Government the opportunity to enter into dialogue with the UK [as they constantly request] about 'ownership' of these Islands.
How much more social disharmony and damage to our economy will we choose to endure all for the simple lack of an apology to the families of previously enslaved peoples? Surely any financial pay-out now would be more viable in the long-term?
As a nation, we are blamed for the decisions of our so-called 'leaders' and we are the one's who suffer - when do our 'leaders' ever suffer for us?
We are all being played because the truth is that no one is ever our enemy - only fear and guilt are our true enemies because every 'evil' stems from one or both of these, and only these.
Our reform to direct democracy gives all politicians the opportunity to show that they really are motivated to work for the people and not just for themselves because it removes their decision-making power and any benefits that come with it, should they wish to remain in their positions.
Labour's Ed Miliband is himself often reminding us; 'Look, I am in the persuasion business', so our parliamentary reform would give politicians such as Ed the opportunity to persuade to his heart's content!
An administration would be thoroughly accountable to the people because it will be the people - where a government is not.
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 now.
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
