The closest thing that the UK has to a national religion is the NHS. I think public opinion -across all sections of society- is so strongly in favour of the the NHS, governments only abolish it at their peril.(Original post by simontinsley)
The first bit, fair enough - I do wonder what your qualms with it are, though.
The second bit - well, it is true, but is that a reason? Public opinion also believes we should give no international aid, slash immigration, leave the EU, reintroduce capital punishment and so forth. There's a reason we have representative democracy, not direct.
I agree with some aspects of laws essay in the Orange Book, so I will reread (and examine this bill more closely) before I vote.
Have you got yours?
