    How we can stop the meltdown of our democracy

    Blairwatch has a write up on the Power inquiry, which I mentioned yesterday. Among the recommendations:

    Citizens should be able to initiate law through petitions, hold inquiries and force a parliamentary debate. Parallel processes could be set up for councils and local bodies. MPs should produce annual reports and hold annual general meetings. The inquiry says: "We believe that it is vital not just to reassert one's faith in democracy, but rethink it to meet new challenges."

    This does indeed sound hopeful.
