Direct Democracy Comment

Cameron either lied, or he doesn't care about the economy

In David Cameron's Conservative Party political broadcast [end of Jan. 2013], he stated that the Conservatives were "paying down Britain's debts" . As a point of fact and, despite harsh and unnecessary austerity policy implementation, Britain's debts have actually increased from £811 BN in 2010 [when the Coalition came into office] to £1.1 TN at the end of 2012.

David Cameron says that he didn't intent to mislead but if this is true, this raises the far more important question of how he himself didn't spot that his pre-written speech contained an outright lie and, of how he couldn't distinguish between accumulated and annual public sector debt [which has come down under the coalition] until having it explained to him in writing by the chair [Andrew Dilnot] of the UK Statistics Authority and as usual, this more important issue has been completely washed-over by the mainstream media.

To conclude; David Cameron is either willing to blatantly lie or, he is clueless about the basics surrounding the UK's most important issues. Either way, both demonstrate a complete lack of integrity and concern and so, any statements about being passionate about fixing our dire economic situation simply can not be true.

Top 3 Conservative Party lies about the economy:

"The last government left the biggest debt in the developed world."
After continuously making the above statement, George Osborne admitted to the Treasury Select Committee that he did not know that the UK actually had the lowest debt in the G7. Also, confirmed [by the OECD] is that those who use cash terms [instead of percentages] do so to scare, mislead and to give only half the story.

in 1997, the Conservatives left a debt of 42% of GDP to Labour and under Labour, this debt had fallen to 35%. In 1997, the conservatives debt of 42% was not seen as a major problem but, a debt of just 35% has now prompted the Conservatives to implement austerity policies never before seen in the UK!

"Labour created the biggest deficit in the developed world by overspending."
The UK deficit increased as result of a loss in output/GDP caused by the global banking crisis and not as a result of the bank bailouts, fiscal stimulus or through bringing forward capital spending.

"Our borrowing costs are low because the markets have confidence in George Osborne's austerity plan and without it the UK will end up like Greece."
The main reason for why UK borrowing costs have fallen since 2008 is because savings have increased. As a result, the demand and price for bonds have increased and due to the inverse relationship between the price of bonds and its yield, the borrowing rates have fallen. Also, the markets expect the economy to remain flat which means that the price for bonds will remain high and therefore, our borrowing costs will remain low.

Fixing the UK economy is a cakewalk:

1. Reform to direct democracy
2. Stop printing money [it creates a false economy with a weak currency and a long-term deflation headache]
3. Take back the money we gave to the banks
4. Use 5% of this to establish a state-ran bank of the people
5. Put the rest back into the kitty
6. Collect new banking customers as the big banks fail [cleansing the economy of weak businesses as they go]
7. Implement alternative saving sources [such as freezing foreign aid to richer countries]
8. Implement policy to eliminate benefit fraud
9. Put the tax rate for the richest [Dave's mates] back to 50% and close corporate tax avoidance schemes
10. Incentivise businesses to convert to Eco Capitalism

To summarise; Tax high earners and corporations and use this money to fund an under-lying economy [through investment on social support and employment-creation projects without cuts to public services] and then settle the government debt. The current 'solution' is to settle government debt by punishing the poor and protecting the rich, which will not create wealth and could even create further debt as more and more people become unemployed as the economy retracts even further.

In their drive to sure-up voter-friendly statements and policies, UK politicians are themselves adding to the UK deficit and driving the UK bankrupt and it is this behaviour combined with corruption in the banking system that will keep the UK broke.

Employment Tax
Fishing License Tax
Inheritance Tax
Value-added Tax

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.
