A NEW political party has been started by two Comet country businessmen.
The Your Right To Democracy Party was launched earlier this month by Eric Hannah, 58, of St Michael's Mount, Hitchin and Dave Ralph, 50, of Common View, Letchworth GC.
Claiming not to have a political agenda, the pair say they are fed up with what they see as a lack of true democracy in our political system. Instead they want to put in place a system of governance by referendum where submitted proposals are voted for online and become the policy of the party.
"We are just two businessmen who have had enough." Mr Ralph said. "We feel it's time that people stand and vote for what they think is right. We want to give a direct say from voters to their elected MPs on things like how the UK and global financial problems can be resolved.

"It's time everyone stood up to be counted and put democracy top of the agenda. Instead of being told what we have got to do, we have a right and a say."
Some ideas currently floated on their website www.yourrighttodemocracy.org include: Should we legalise drugs? Should we pay third world countries to look after minor criminals? And should profits the financial institutions have made be paid to the public purse straight away instead of paying out big bonuses?
