Raising it with the Prime Minister!

If we want to let those in 'Power' know, the media won't necessarily do this for us.  The Prime Minister has set up a system for petitions to be formally registered with 10 Downing Street ...

So let's ask Gordon to address some of the problems that 'Poweromics' creates ... and let's see if he addresses 'Poweromics' as a result!   I've posted the petition below with 10 Downing Street today ... let's see if they accept it first  ... 


We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to give UK people proper democracy, and address moral (and financial) bankruptcy too

Submitted by David Clift – Deadline to sign up by: 16 March 2010

Category: Government, politics and public administration

More details:

We would like the Government to give the people of the UK proper democracy (a 21st Century democracy), so we'll be listened to effectively and properly represented. e.g. Proportional representation might arguably be a start ... and one step forward from the current system** ...

We would also like to the Government, in a proper and systematic way, to address the moral bankruptcy apparent within Government, financial markets, industry and public life.

We would also like the Government to address, in a proper and systematic way, the impending financial bankruptcy of the UK before it’s too late (i.e. credit crunch - tax crunch - pensions crunch ...).

** We only get a say/vote once every five years in a general election, and even then only a small minority of votes determine which of the main parties gets into Power - i.e. the 2-3% of fringe voters in marginal constituencies that the main parties focus on (and often adjust the voting boundaries of too).
