Direct Democracy proposal for Law - Family and Child Protection
Review of the Independent Safeguards Authority [ISA] and Criminal Records Beaurau [CRB]
• Over 2500 applicants for CRB checks wrongly assessed 
• Suspicions and even rumours logged without independent corroboration from any 3rd party
• Database of applicants to be held on an Intranet database
• Applicants paying approx. £70 per application [generating a revenue of millions]
• Institutions refusing applications from children due to over-whelming CRB processes
• Child Protection groups state that ISA legislation is protecting agencies and employers above children
In our opinion, it is abhorrent that suspicions and rumours are recorded without any independent corroboration from anywhere and, that the implications of this coupled with incorrect assessments has the potential to ruin lives and alienate those who could be of benefit to children's welfare.
The former government demonstrated time and time again that it is both complacent, ignorant and incompetent when it comes to managing supposedly secure information. Time and time again, they lost both data and hardware through nothing but bad practice and complacency. Not only was this dangerous, but it was also expensive and, the nature of the losses indicates that government policy and internal departmental procedure are wholly to blame. In our opinion, governments alone can not be trusted with the security of personal information or, with the running of its own departments.
In our opinion, the only way to guarantee 100% protection from intrusion is to not have the main database connected to any network. Data transfer is still possible through manual means and the People's Administration proposes to use this method. The fact that our government is not even aware of this option shows a lot about the culture of thought within both the government and the IT firms that they use.
We feel that governments are making our personal privacy even more vulnerable by misleading themselves and then the people, by stating that network-connected databases can be made 100% secure and, we feel that complacency at government level with regards to digitised personal data is highly dangerous.
We also believe that the former government's failure to really grasp the power, efficiencies, strengths and weaknesses of the Internet and its associated technologies, has led to failure and incompetence when negotiating contracts with IT firms and the current coalition seems to share a similar outlook.
Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose a complete review of ISA legislation. It is clear that innocent members of the public are being wrongly penalised whilst at the same time, children themselves are not being further protected, whilst the government generate yet another revenue from the people.
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.
Following the People's Administration Direct Democracy Party [a mainstream registered party since March 2010] on Twitter, gives us your permission [when a majority] to invoke existing laws under UN Articles 21 and 61 [which the UK is signed-up to], so as to take immediate control of all policy decision-making by forming a legitimate UN-sanctioned direct democracy with majority election and without revolution, in the UK.
The People's Administration's constitution for reform to direct democracy and our voting protocols 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!
