Is indirect democracy always what people want?

Is indirect democracy always good? This answer can only really be answered if you see both sides of the spectrum. On one side, you are voting for a person whom you most agree with. On the other hand, inside the parliament that person you voted might be a completely different person. But, is indirect democracy really good? Indirect democracy can have very good outcomes, like Canada, but it can also not have good outcomes, such as Botswana. A ban in hunting certain animals ruined peoples' crops. This is because certain animals mentioned in the ban were prone to eating their crops. This ban was decided by indirect democracy. Therefore I support indirect democracy.

    Well is your opinion but Indirect decromacy does not always have to be about the mps decision it can be about the peoples choice for example Brexit, Brexit is an example of the peoples choice because the government gave the chance for the people to have a say they did. Nearly a quarter of this country wanted to leave before. But the goverment did not fufill their promise. I am a remain suporter and half of the country is a remain suporter to yet the government has done nothing.

    It has taking almost 4 years for the government to find a deal and leave the EU. Why can't the people choose what they actually want. Trust me it would probably take about 3 months.
