Security Expense for all ex-ministers to be means-tested

The People's Administration does not believe that former ministers of any position should be entitled to security expenses without financial income means-testing.

Whilst we believe that this should be an entitlement whilst in the job, we do not believe that it is just that Tony Blair [for example] currently claims an annual allowance of £225,000 [minimum] to cover his personal security costs based only on his former role, whilst he now earns millions annually on the back of his former role and indirectly - on the back of the British people.

The People's Administration does not believe that these expenses should be paid at any time - never mind during a recession that will hit the poorest hardest. We feel that the policy to pay [regardless of income/ability to pay] really takes the political piss!

Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose to means test all former Prime Ministers and current ministers with regards to funding their private security costs.

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.
