"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to give UK people a 21st Century democracy in order to regain trust in Parliament."
"We would like the Government to give UK people a democratic system fit for the 21st Century. New technology, such as the internet, is creating a 21st century platform for democracy – where everyone can communicate/see what is happening, express their views/concerns, suggest ideas for improvement and have their say on the priorities/changes needed. Other Governments are already starting to do this, and gaining trust (and ideas) as a result.
More referendums should take place and representation should be based on ability and a true representation (e.g. more proportional representation). Representatives should also reflect, and be continually answerable to, a robust, representative and independent sample of the community they serve. One person should not be given complete responsibility (on election day) to represent 100,000’s of people every day for five years, whilst not being continually accountable to those they are supposed to serve.
Democracy should happen “Every Day”, not just “Election Day” …
… as “Trust” will not be restored without it."
