Douglas Carswell on Direct Democracy

Involve are doing a seminar on Direct Democracy tomorrow (early) evening. Details are here.

Here are two entirely neutral views on Direct Democracy:

“A direct democracy is where great thinkers are made to drink hemlock at the whim of the masses.”

That was my friend, Matt that said that.


“A direct democracy is worse that a fascist dictatorship: At least with the Nazis, you knew who was in charge.”

Bill Thompson said that, but sadly not anywhere that I can link to at the moment.
