Time to listen to the people

Scotland was given a vote on staying in or leaving the union.

When will England get a vote on sticking with or leaving the EU?

Either we live in a democracy or we don’t.

Is it not about high time that we also have a vote on whether or not to bring back the death penalty for murder?

I for one am sick to death of being told that the Government knows what is best for the country.

The Government is there to do what the people want, not what it wants.

We have fought two world wars for democracy, yet we have more and more rules and laws than ever. Where is our freedom to live the way we, the people, want?

The Government census forms ask plenty of questions. When are we going to get a form asking what we, the people, want?
