All important decisions should be decided by direct democracy?

Direct Democracy There are three forms of direct democracy used in the United States The most common form of Direct Democracy is the initiative or proposition.

An initiative is normally a law or constitutional amendment proposed and passed by the citizens of a state. Direct Democracy is a form of government have to say about where everyone gets to have their say about how there country in run.

I support the motion to ensure decisions that affect us.It should be made usually by voting. So like Brexit referendum what means by this is we will have less democracy .

When Brexit is over probably so everyone to help shape and take major decisions to which is the democracy way to government uk.

    I disagree with you, because if we all got to vote with direct democracy, then we might not have enough time to do what we want to do. Also, people might get bored if they voted all the time, for example:-
    These are who voted for the 2016 United Kingdom European Union membership referendum:-
    Votes %
    Leave 17,410,742 51.89%
    Remain 16,141,241 48.11%
    Valid votes 33,551,983 99.92%
    Invalid or blank votes 25,359 0.08%
    Total votes 33,577,342 100.00%
    I think that if we voted by direct democracy all the time the total votes, voter turnout would be even lower than this referendum. I think this, because if we voted all the time, then people might get fed up with voting, and I think this would be the cause for the decrease of the people voting.

    I think that we should leave the voting to all the people that have been elected to parliament because it is their job to know what the best thing is.

      The Brexit referendum had a high voter turnout, compared to a local or general election. Can you explain why this might be, and compare this to the turnout for the last general election?
