I am an extremist because I actually believe in democracy.
Who should run a country? The people of that country.
I don’t believe we need a privately-educated Oxbridge elite to rule us. But we’ve been trained to think we do.
Being an MP should be a normal, dull community duty. Wages capped at that of an average worker. Tenures should be legally limited and positions cycled to prevent Stalinism / nepotism or other forms of bureaucratic caste.
Unless it is direct, it isn’t democracy.
