Let people vote on marching

Published 20/07/2011

Now that the marching, rioting, burning season is coming to a close, it is time, long past time in fact, to give the people a say in what the answer is to this nonsense.

I propose that everybody on the electoral register is given a vote now to determine what the future holds for us and our children.

I think all that is required in the voting paper are three questions which are:

Do you want things to remain as they are?

Do you want all marches banned completely?

Do you want all marches confined to areas where they are tolerated?

The result of the vote will be the voice of the people and that is what we need but never hear.

No input from politicians, clergy or gang leaders is needed or wanted.

The people will decide what they want without any interference from anyone.
