About democracy isle of man
The Isle of Man in the 21st century is a highly developed society but we still make do with a crude 19th century system of limited and indirect democracy that was designed in – and for – a different era. Almost every other aspect of our lives has been transformed by social, economic and technological progress, but the way we make collective decisions is now hopelessly outdated.
The only way to restore trust and credibility to politics is to give people a real and direct say over issues that matter most to them and their lives. That means allowing them to decide on national and local issues, on a case by case basis, by voting on policy instead of simply electing a government once every five years to make all the key decisions on their behalf
Democracy Isle of Man is not a political party but is forming a group of action oriented people who want to get involved make a positive difference to the Isle of Man.
