The Voice of The People
The Voice of The People
We don’t need MPs to represent us now we can represent ourselves.
In pre-internet times, it made sense to elect one person to represent our views in the House of Commons, but technology has moved on and direct democracy is now a real possibility, where everyone’s voice can be heard.
In theory, Members of Parliament should gather at Westminster to represent their constituents’ interests but, in practice, many follow their party-line to advance their political career.
The House of Commons costs around £400 million per year to bankroll 650 MPs which is an unnecessary expense when we can convey our wishes ourselves, instantly, using modern technology.
Vox Pop aims to put the British public at the heart of the country’s decision-making.
to put in place systems and structures to enable the voice of the people to become the main system of decision-making in government;
to implement online voting procedures so the electorate can decide on all issues of government policy by majority vote;
to establish an online platform for members of the public to suggest policy which, if endorsed by a percentage of the electorate in the region which will be effected by the policy, will be put to a public vote online;
to eradicate the current political system of middle-managers (MPs) and remove the associated expenses of the House of Commons;
to enable the public to vote on issues relevant to their region, whether nationally or locally;
to introduce legislation to implement Vox Pop’s aims of an online democracy as well as to safeguard the electorate’s right to vote without pressure, duress, bribery, threat of violence, threat of financial penalty, or any other involvement which would seek to influence a free vote.
Political parties rely on donations and party membership subscriptions to raise funds and Vox Pop is no different.

Hiding government documents from the public is no fair way to hold a referendum
The impartial, unsubstantiated, hypothetical scaremongering has begun
MPs are all going on a Summer Holiday
There’s no accountability with representative government
When, or if, they do react, MPs can often make a situation worse.
