Report on the Barnsley meeting at which the leader of Reform UK, Richard Tice detailed his party’s vision. He proved to be a strong supporter of referendums, but some work remains to be done if the party is to gain the full benefit of what direct democracy can bring it…However, Reform UK’s greatest appeal is to former Tories, but with a bruising campaign ahead they need to inspire voters from across the board, and giving the people the right to control laws and to call for new ones will do exactly that…

Once again Reform UK’s Honorary President, Nigel Farage, backs radical reform. He is still calling for the routine use of referendums on issues that the people, not the politicians, see as important.


Direct Democracy – Addressing Your Grievances, Needs and Aspirations (GNA) Do politicians ask what you want? If they do, do they listen? Or do they do whatever the party tells them to do? You know. But with candidates supporting the routine use of the tools of direct democracy, you become the priority. It’s time for a change, for the people to rule, to make policies and laws that we support. If we run the show, consent is a given: no need to ask, just vote for the right candidates.

Neil appeared on Lembit Opik’s TNT Radio show, and explained the Movement’s proposals for the adoption in the UK of a Swiss-style direct democracy. The host and former LibDem MP obviously liked the idea, demonstrating the powerful attraction of real democracy. Under such a system the voters have supreme political power – not the parties, the politicians nor their self-interested financial backers.

Nigel Farage regularly sings the praises of Switzerland, calling it the “best governed” and “most democratic country in the world”, in particular noting the ability of the Swiss to call for referendums on issues that they believe are important. This leads to the Swiss voting around four times a year, but they like it even if their own politicians do not. Why does Reform UK not back Nigel on this? Why do they not propose a system like that put forward by the UK’s Direct Democracy Movement that is modeled on Switzerland’s semi-direct democracy? Hopefully the Honorary President can get Richard Tice and his team to see sense and back this great vote-winner, real democracy, that Nigel has identified and is backing so strongly.
