    Yeah those could defiantly be possibilities! For the democracy, direct democracy involving referendums could definitely be a shot, I was even thinking maybe how referendums aid representative democracy but I can't remember the last time it came up

    And no problem, there was a whole essay plan on 'are civil liberties under threat in the U.K.' But I hate that unit so much so I tore it out however I've got the essay plan for it as we did it in class if you did want it 😁

    Thank you.

    So how would you differ you answers in structure if the question comes in the format of:

    1. "To what extent.."
    2. "Should...(referendums be more widely used in the UK"
    3. "Assess the various measures..."

    To extent is probably the same as internal arguments within the paragraphs cause it's basically for and against, same with the should one
    The various methods well you could do a specific para on a specific measure/method and evaluate internally or do more than one
    If it's simply argue for something then don't mention the other side of the argument in the body of the argument as you'd be wasting time...
    Election questions about outcomes is probably the only one you might wanna change the structure of in my opinion but I guess it just depends on preference of how to do it

    For the 40 mark questions you could do 4 very in depth paragraphs or 6 not so in depth paragraphs.. Personally I do 6 cause I'd feel like I'm waffling with just 4

    Do what you feel comfortable with 😁

    i would have that question

    so say things like changing the electoral system, reforming hold, lowering the voting age....?
    do we counter argue?

    Reforming the representative model:
    - electoral system needs reforming
    - ability to recall MP's
    - adding an elected HoL

    Direct Democracy:
    - introduction of initiatives
    - increased use of referendums
    - greater involvement of citizen juries/consultation groups with the government between elections

    This is ripped straight from the revision guide's model guide answer.

    As you can see it's pretty bloody long only because that's a plan for a 40mark question, you can probably tell there's 2 arguments and then an evaluation for each one there's also examples

    Ooooo I like the wording, it's different, did you make that one up? It could definitely be a potential

    'To what extent does the UK conform to the principles of liberal democracy'
    Hard question:
    Not because votes aren't equal (safe/marginal seats) -> but provides strong stable government
    Not because unelected second chamber -> but representative of the people, amend legislation effectively, it works
    Not because uncodified constitution -> we haven't had a crisis yet, flexible so can adapt to circumstances, we have HR which protects liberties
    Not because our representatives aren't in interests of people? whipped, party loyalty etc -> however increased rebelling, like Syria 2013

    This is just off the top of my head no idea

    I'm focusing all my attention of Elections and pressure groups
    Every past paper question has been for elections in the 25 marker just asking to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of systems and make essays around these.
    Also for Pressure groups it always seems to be for the essay a question of pluarlism vs elitism or a question on if pressure groups are becoming more or less powerful.

    yes:
    free and fair elections
    tolerance for religions/cultures
    mandate given to gov's to govern
    universal adult suffrage
    devolved powers
    gov. is accountable to parliament
    large number of parties + PG's

    no:
    -FPTP unfair
    unelected head of state who has royal assent
    weak seperation of powers
    no codified constitution unlike other liberal democracies (USA)
    the PM has the royal prerogative powers
    influence of elitists..
