Direct Democracy Comment

Cameron promotes use of force over dialogue in Egypt

On his first visit to Egypt since the uprising, David Cameron takes UK arms dealers to establish formal introductions with the new regime [21st Feb. 2011]. As the new regime hasn't yet been established, the People's Administration believes that this must therefore be an attempt to influence the formation of yet another foreign regime. Even if this is not a conscious intention, it will have an influence.

Until free elections are held, the same senior army generals who propped-up the former dictatorship are the only current form of government.

According to the BBC [13th Jan. 2012], UK-made CS Gas was used on protesters by Egypt - in November 2011!

In making the decision to take arms dealers to Egypt, David Cameron demonstrates that he either doesn't understand, or doesn't care about the potential for foreign regimes to use violence over dialogue when in conflict. He is therefore continuing the work of former PM Gordon Brown in selling UK arms to oppressive foreign regimes.

In making the decision to take arms dealers to Egypt, David Cameron promotes violence over dialogue as a solution for others to adopt. At the same time, he will tell us that violence solves nothing and that those who choose violence over dialogue are 'evil' or are 'terrorists'.

The arms manufacturers on the trip:

Rolls Royce
BAe Systems
Cobham Group
Qinetiq
Thales
Ultra Electronics


The Coalition has so far revoked only 8 of 118 UK arms export contracts to Libya since the General Election 2010. It has also been independently stated [21st Feb. 2011] that UK arms have been used to oppress the Libyan uprising and so David Cameron's office is 'investigating'. Maybe he should start by having a chat with former PM Gordon Brown?

To Summarise; Given the choice, David Cameron decided to focus on arms sales, over promoting dialogue and human rights issues.

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 of the democratic principals up-held by the UN [which the UK has signed-up to], the people already have the lawful right to reform to direct democracy - even outside a general election.
