Things I Want to Shout

The only country ever to have used nuclear weapons in an act of aggression is the United States of America. They did this twice, and had plans to carry out many more bombings, had Japan not agreed to surrender. Hundreds of thousands of civilians were killed as a result.

Democracy isn't about elections between a multitude of political parties; it's about referenda. It's therefore surprising to me that referenda are the least used tools of western democracies. I'd like to think that, as technology makes voting simpler to administer, this will change, but it probably won't! Currently, parties win on the support of the largest minority, not the majority. I don't care about parties; they rarely have consistent policies and rarely honour the promises they make. I care about issues, and a referendum is a definitive answer on public opinion.

That said, we only have to look at how long John Sargent and Anne Widdecombe stayed in Strictly to know what happens when the population gets to wield its power. At least it usually comes right in the end.
