    No liberal democracy is completely different concept
    Democratic is about the democratic deficit and democratic renewal more of but just including the positives of our democracy not just the negatives

    And these are my teachers predictions, the democracy one might not be accurate as it has come up recently
    However it could come up in another form like with direct democracy or how it helps our representative democracy
    Good luck im sure you know your stuff!!☺️Attachment 544227Attachment 544229Attachment 544231

    HOW SAFE IS IT TO REVISE ONLY 2 TOPICS?
    I see that others have asked this question – can you guarantee that studying 2 topics is enough (if known in detail)?

    That seems way too specific and I say that as someone who worked at a pressure group...
    Surely it's more likely for them to ask the impact of social media on direct democracy or democratic deficit?

    Separately, in terms of participation and direct democracy - could we argue that Corbyn's initial style of PMQs is an example ("I had an email from Emma about the NHS")?

    Elections: impact of using pr for general election

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    You'd talk about representation of parties under this system, wouldn't you?

    I read this earlier: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2015-32601281

    It gives an insight into what the 2015 General Election would've looked like if PR was used.

    Personally, I think that's not a great idea, for all we know, the two topics you have revised could have really hard questions to answer which could knock you off. I'd say revise three

    I have a plan for the pressure groups one but it's just a different question, the plan I've got is for 'to what extent have pressure groups behaviour and effectiveness been affected by social media?' I know it ain't the same but you can still transfer some of the stuff

    Participation is modernising:
    Party membership, voter turn out down
    Single issue participation preferred now rather than ideologies

    E-petitions (run by pressure groups NOT on parliament website):
    Attracting media attention
    Easy to set up
    Introducing market forces to pressure politics (supply and demand)
    Gov will have to take notice and answer

    Flash demonstrations:
    Easy to set up, co ordinate eg Heathrow airport expansion
    Rapid communication allows effective direct action
    Eg fracking

    Single issue concentration:
    Eg green belt, fracking, zero hour contracts

    Mass participation:
    E-petitions
    Write in campaigns
    Demonstrations
    Twitter campaigns
    Civil disobedience


    Trending on social media:
    Fast campaigns
    Mass involvement
    Publicity
    Pressure on government to respond

    Government communications:
    Government own petition site, 100,000 debate in Parliament - two way communication, government responds and is better informed about public opinion on issues

    Limitations:
    Insiders still have great influence
    Internet campaigns may lack authority and veracity
    Executive power- they make the rules, decisions
    Continuing party domination of the political agenda

    For the democracy one they have all come up in the past so you can easily find the mark scheme and plans ☺️

    This is what Wikipedia has to say:

    "Several organisations and political scientists maintain lists of free and unfree states, both in the present and going back a couple centuries. Of these, the best known may be the Polity Data Set and that produced by Freedom House.There is agreement amongst several intellectuals and organisations such as Freedom House that the states of the European Union, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, Japan, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, South Korea, Taiwan, the United States, India, Canada, Mexico, Israel, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand are liberal democracies, with Canada having the largest land area and India currently having the largest population among the democracies in the world."

    Yeah for sure! And what kind of government would be produced and all the other stuff
    You'll wanna use some of the pr systems to back up your points too
