The world around us keeps changing so we need a political system that can handle the changes incurring now in the 21st century.
The current system of governance across the UK has been referred to as an "Elective Dictatorship", essentially an outdated system of governance that operates with little accountability to the electorate who are required to pay for it.
The relationship between the people and the government bears little to do with democracy. The system, is essentially controlled by political parties, with each main party representing a minority group within the electorate.
Political party elites select the majority of the candidates we are required to vote for and these candidates primarily "canvas" on the manifesto promises set out by the party organisations. Many elected representatives see their political career prospects as dependent on accountability to party bosses rather than being accountable to the electorate who pay their wages.
Is this convoluted form of democracy what we want in a Modern Democratic Scottish State?
Rather than political parties setting selective manifestos is it not time that WE the electorate, set out what is required to develop OUR needs in the form of a national Blueprint, in effect a business plan for politicians to work towards on our behalf - politicians who should be directly accountable to You and ME - the electorate?
