All important decisions should be decided by direct Democracy

Democracy is a system of government where either the people vote for themselves (direct democracy) or when members of Parliament decide ,based on people’s opinion, for us (indirect democracy).

All important decisions should be decided by direct democracy.

I disagree with this because there are information the government would know is not the same as the people. Evidence of this is when false information was given about three different things such as Turkey joining the EU, the Eropean Army and 350 million going to the NHS. I know this beacause David Cameron, 19 June 2016, stated:

''I don't want anyone to vote on the basis of Turkey joining [the EU], the Eropean Army is not going to happen, or the 350 million isn't true... Those three who are leading things on leaflets, are simply not true... completely untrue.”

David Cameron is a member of Parliament, so he proves my theory of the MPs knowing more than us to vote fairly on a decision.

This is why I think not all decisions should be decided by direct democracy.
