The people of the UK are losing their patience with politics. They are increasingly disengaged and fed up. As a result, voters tend not to have a clear preference about who they want to win - most people in the UK vote to keep the ‘other lot’ out. This has resulted in decisions that don’t seem to make anyone happy.
Here’s why it doesn’t work - our democratic system ignores people’s opinions and problems for five years, then asks them to pick a team. They vote for a candidate based on who they normally support, a soundbite that a candidate has said that seems to make sense, or a single issue on the agenda at the time. Then, they are ignored for another five years until it happens all over again.
Life’s not that simple.The solution
We're bringing true democracy to Parliament Forest of Dean first
. But we need a seat in the House of Commons first. Our GoFundMe amount is the limit of promotional spending for this parliamentary campaign to take the Forest of Dean parliamentary seat
for the people. It will allow us to:
• Print and distribute leaflets - £1,500 needed by Tuesday 23rd May to cover the Forest of Dean!
• Pay for promotional expenses such as website development
• Pay for travel (by the cheapest means practically possible) to speak to votersIs it important?
If this works it could be the biggest change to democracy in hundreds of years. People will have the greatest say ever in how their country is run.Yes, it's important.
