To make a suggestion in order to reduce the need for anyone to take drastic action themselves in relation to a petition cause...
I believe what the public would appreciate and feel empowered with as a great new political tool..
Would be a big red "STOP" button. That the public CAN push to HALT any project that they passionately do not want, regardless of which party franchises are in cabinet.
The proposed big red button, would require 1 Million legitimate signatures from the public subjects.
That is 1/6 of the 60 Million or so population.
If 1 Million signatures were obtained from the public through a special medium provided to facilitate such an action...
Then all work and plans on the project in question would STOP immediately upon reaching the 1 Million signatures. By legal automatic action.
The Government would be then forced to reconsider and debate the project again. Do to public opposition before any work could resume. A minimum period of 6 months would be compulsory.
This would stop things like the Newbury bypass events, people fastening themselves to trees and other ridiculous protest practices.
Fire engines spraying paint on buildings
People blocking roads with boats and other things..
It follows to be reasonable if people are not going to get a real vote on individual Franchise policy decisions....
The public should have the power to do something about things they really object to.. such as M6 toll roads, High Speed Railway lines, immigration, and so forth.
It would encourage people to go about traditional methods of collecting fairly on paper or online, the support.
The franchise need to acknowledge that their voters have opinions that are not aligned 100% with the franchise party plans and it's a wasted vote if their power and votes are fuelling plans and schemes that they are seriously opposed to.. but they had no option alternative for their vote. Because voting for a different party would have been even worse.
