Found A Petition To Change This Situation

Anyway, just quickly, as I'm short on time. 

Never said it was easy, if it were we'd all try it. However it is possible. There are currently 19 elected independent MPs to prove this so the "old chestnut" is just that. 

Politics required determination and hardwork. Those that claim it's impossible just don't want to put in the effort and that's the kind of politician we don't want. 

The fact that so many people are unhappy with Labour and so many are unhappy with the Tories,   and yet,     there are only19  independent MP's,  shows how hard it is to get elected without party backing.

 

No one said it was impossible but simply that it was very hard,  time consuming and financially difficult for many.

I also disagree that we would  ALL  try it if it were easy but you possibly might  -  apparently nothing to stop you if you wish.

The post office still is under government control.  

 

It was the letter delivery side at Royal Mail that was sold off.

Thanks - for some reason I thought it was an arms-length operation, or a public corporation. Happy to be corrected.

    Yes. The original contract ended in 2023 and has been  been extended twice after finding it impossible to transfer to the far better Amazon- yes THE Amazon- Cloud system. 

 

    This Government already decides who can vote by controlling access to the current voting system by selecting the levels and types of ID required,  effectively deselecting voters  of age and social groups who are historically left leaning. Who will decide which takes part in the daily referenda?  A Government who were voted in over a decade before!

 

    An MP has to read and understand  parliamentary and legal language and refer to or ask Governments Departments. legal advisors, financial institutions and Civil Servants, listen to a range of representations and challenges from other MPs, constituents, business, commerce etc., etc, when deciding how to vote.

 

    Who will decide what question will be asked?  The King?, Corbyn? Truss?, Farage? Our Courts would be swamped with claims that decisions were made on misinformation. Appeals, repeals, repeat vote, would just  lead the whole decision making system lock up.

 

    In America voting on the financial aspect is used to block Presidential or Government decisions.

Thanks for the highlighted bit of this reply. The rest is a totally different subject, best discussed by those who want to, in a different topic.

      In the UK the Treasury reports directly to the Cabinet on every aspect of legislation at the earliest stage and effectively kicks into touch or modifies upcoming legislation. This is what the OP wants an uninformed public to do to do at the final stage. It is impossible to separate the fiscal involvement of the Treasury from the forming of legislation by Cabinet.
