A Modest Proposal: For the Agremeent of the People
"The history of parliament in the UK has a consistent theme: the refusal to accept any binding contract with the people. This unacceptable status quo goes for Holyrood as much as for Westminster. The time has come for people to challenge the power of the ruling class.
We want to see the Scottish Parliament become an institution that it has so far failed to be: An institution committed to the sovereignty of the people. We want the people of Scotland to lead the rest of the UK by example, and ensure that the actions of a government are bound by shared political and ethical values. And we propose the first step: a modest proposal, for the agreement of the people.
Are you with us?"
- Angus Reid and Mary Davis, authors of a Modest Proposal
