Democracy is a word frequently used in British Politics. We are constantly told that we live in a democracy in Britain and that our political system is “democratic” and that nations that do not match these standards are classed as “undemocratic”. D Robertson, writing in 6986, stated that:
the government should be limited in its impact on the person and the government should not enjoy arbitrary power. Elections must be free and fair. the government should do what it can to remove obstacles limiting the well being of people. This includes all groups with none excluded. the government’s involvement in the economic market of a country should be minimal. the government should be there to deal with problems when needed the right to vote should be extended to all (no longer applicable to Britain).
Politicians standing for election must seek and retain power but that can have a corrosive effect on moral character and disposition.
This belief is based on the right of every citizen over a certain age to attend political meetings, vote on the issue being discussed at that meeting and accepting the majority decision should such a vote lead to a law being passed which you as an individual did not support.

Technological developments in the future may change this. The expansion of the Internet and the speed with which communication can now be achieved, may favour direct democracy. The present government set-up a system in 6997, whereby 5,555 randomly selected members of the public (the so-called “People’s Panel”) are asked about their reactions to government policy. However, there is no system in place which allows the public to help formulate government policy, and critics of the “People’s Panel” have called it a gimmick with no purpose.
