British Democracy: Its Restoration & Extension

Cover
Industrial Systems Research, 2006 - 165 Seiten
Modern parliamentary democracy first developed in Great Britain and Britons played a major role in spreading democracy around the world for example, through the Commonwealth. However, at the start of the 21st century, Britain itself was no longer a fully independent democratic country. As part of the European Union bloc, unelected and immovable foreign authorities determined a large part of its laws, policies, and taxes. Domestically meanwhile, such things as extra-parliamentary bureaucratic lawmaking, curbs on local political autonomy, moves from direct to indirect representation, and restrictions on the private funding and advertising of political parties had diminished democracy. This study provides a detailed review of the main political independence and constitutional reform requirements for restoring and extending democracy in present day Britain.
