RCT Council say Have Your Say

"This survey will allow engagement with people within the communities who want a different avenue to express their concerns and issues that is not in a Forum or public setting."

But don't expect any answers

Democracy is just a word now not a form of government any more because politicians themselves are destroying it at every turn.

Here in Australia it is Compulsory to vote in federal elections or you will get fined and to my way of thinking that is not democratic.

It may be desirable to vote but it shouldn't be compulsory in a democracy.

That so called bastion of democracy " America " is certainly not democratic, If you think it is try voting communism there and see what happens. whether you agree with the ideology or not it shouldn't be banned if you call yourself democratic.

There is too much corruption in politics everywhere nowadays for democracy to work and that applies to all areas of government right down to local councils.

So if you think you have a democratic right to anything you must be living in the past, A long long way in the past.

We just had a fine example recently of how democratic people are in Scotland's referendum where people who advertised in their windows that they were voting "NO" were having their windows smashed by the "YES" brigade. Now that was democratic wasn't it ?
