How on earth does someone except to create a big society with this micromanagement scheme, I'll never understand. We can't decide on every little thing that might affect us, that's what we have our representatives for. It's impossible to make everyone happy, or make a system that's fairer than fair. So maybe instead of pushing off their work, Cameron and his ilk should do their jobs.
Unfortunately, Cameron's "Big Society" has caused a lot more infighting and strife thanks to the local referendum scheme. Nobody would argue that the Big Society has actually been beneficial in that particular area. In fact, new fights break out on a regular basis because people cannot come to agreements there.
Cameron's 'Big Society' ideal has not gone too far with the local referendum scheme. If it goes too far, we will know because there will be a huge crap shoot f info that comes out because of it. For now, it has not gone too far but we need to keep an eye on it to make sure that it does not.
Sometimes, Britain's government may overstep its bounds. As such, former PM David Cameron tried to put more power to the people by encouraging more local referendums in order to get new projects going. The only downside to these referenda would be the time lag involved--if people get in the way of their elected officials, housing projects would be delayed.
Cameron's 'Big Society' ideal has not gone too far with the local referendum scheme. His Big Society ideal is a policy 'to create a climate that empowers local people and communities, building a big society that will “take power away from politicians and give it to people”. I support anything that does not harm anything or anybody but someone that has the nerve to take a stand. It used to be the government worked for the people and now it is the complete opposite.
