Every decision, every thought, and every action a politician makes, will be criticised by someone, somewhere. Politicians will always get the decisions wrong in someone’s eyes; so, should all major decisions go to a referendum?
Some people want all major decisions to go to a public vote, here is what they might be thinking…
- We should vote as all decisions will be made legally and fairly,
- We should all get a say in everything, after all we are living in this country,
- Politicians always make wrong decisions, causing outrage and chaos,
- Politicians take advantage of their power.
- We should be able to suggest and vote on what we want, rather than being ignored by our local MPs.
Other people want parliament to stay the same, for politicians to keep making the decisions, here is what they might be thinking…
- The public will, more often than not, make the wrong decisions or put forward random issues,
- Politicians will not like the decisions the public make, forcing themselves to resign. An example of this is, David Cameron resigning after the original Brexit referendum.
- If this were to happen it could split families up, as they have different opinions. Again, like Brexit.
- Politicians are doing a perfectly good job anyway.
- If the public were to vote for everything, the country could get out of hand.
I believe, the country should stay as it is. If people were to vote, the bullet points above would become a reality. MPs and politicians are qualified at their jobs, and most of them (not all!) do it well. Politicians will always make mistakes and wrong decisions but, everyone is human so they are bound to make to.
