Foreign policy? I want a government that will get us out of Europe, or alternatively join the Euro. I would have absolutely no idea how to vote or what opinion the eventual 'government' would hold.
I want a government that would solve the economic crisis. Again I'd have absolutely no idea whether what we would end up with could do the job at all - let alone do it in a way that I think right.
Yes I know that, under the current system, I might not get what I voted for because there might be more who want something different. At least though we, and the rest of the world, would know what to expect - in broad terms at least.
In fact would we have a government? Six hundred individuals all with their own opinions? A recipe for chaos?
No Sir - impractical idealism.
