Molded by Parliament

Interactive Democracy gives the public the power to push issues forward and force Parliament to debate them, with the objective of offering the public a small range of solutions from which to choose, in a referendum. I would expect MPs to bring all their experience to bear, their knowledge of the existing laws and policies, and to broaden the debate to involve all aspects of associated issues. The results may be a referendum on something that looks a little different to the original concept.
This balance of power, balance of wants and practical needs, balance of amateur insight and expert law making, is important to the creation of good and realistic government.
