Direct Democracy proposal for Law - Civil and Criminal
Review of euthanasia and suicide laws
It is illegal in the UK to commit suicide and religious laws have conditioned us into seeing suicide as unacceptable - It is even written into our legal statute that to commit suicide is a sin!
However, if you choose to commit suicide via smoking cigarettes or through drinking alcohol then this is acceptable because if you pay the state and its corporate friends for your suicide then it is not illegal but, if you want to do it independently you will be criminalised.
The People's Administration believes that the right to decide the balance between quality of life and longevity of life lies only with each individual. We simply do not believe that any one person should have the right to decide this for another.
Whilst we have given ourselves the legal right to end the life of others through the act of abortion, it is in our opinion, perverse and hypocritical that we are denied the opportunity to take the same decision for ourselves - even more so if we want to consider endorsing capital punishment. Christian law dictates to all that regardless of your quality of life or your right to form an opinion of the quality of your life, you must endure and suffer without dignity until you die by other means.
Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose to reverse current legislation regarding suicide and euthanasia with a view to prioritising the personal right of choice over the opinions of others.
We recognise and acknowledge that there are areas that would need addressing so as to protect any new laws from being open to abuse, but we believe that a solution is easily achievable.
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
