    No I wouldn't say that restoring capital punishment was a major constitutional issue. Things such as the devolution in Scotland and Wales were major constitutional issues, and they had referendums.
    Some points that would argue against referenda would be:
    1. Parliament is supposed to be sovereign and should not abdicate its responsibility like this. Referenda could be likened to an army general asking the public how he should command his armies.
    2. The public is often ill informed about complex issues like the euro so it would make more sense to leave it to the experts, hence the life peers in the House of Lords who have specialist knowledge.
    3. Public opinion changes i.e. the Welsh voted against devolouting in 1979 but for it in 1997.
    4. Governments hold referenda for party political advantage which is why Wilson used it in your previous example.
    5. Governments only hold referendums if they think they can win them which is why Blair hasnt held one on the Euro yet.
    6. They aren't always a "level playing field" i.e. the "yes" campaigns had far more media, party and financial support on both the common market and devolution referenda.
    7. Questions in referenda are difficult to frame and bound to oversimplify complex issues.

    Having said this I would say that something such as the Initiative which they have in the USA and Switzerland would be better, as the people would choose when they wanted to take part in democracy directly.

    Lets have a look now, democracy is the will of the people right? And this is where the people get to choose how a country is run etc. So it works in a pragmatic way, what is popular is right. But earlier you said the opposite and as I said that is one of the arguments Hitler used against democracy. Either you aren't sure of what you believe in or you are changing your views so that you can have an easier argument.

    sorry boss, take it u all send txts will full spellings?
    and yes a german would be more productive, more acustomed to western society.
    i just honestly cannot wait and when it does and all non Brits are removed, that shall be a great day. your telling me you walk down the streets and feel comfortable if you see rag heads walking round all the hidjab terrorists, yeh thats a great feature to have.
    omg statistics and be taken to proven anything. Capital punishment isnt supposed to be a deterrant, its supposed to be justice. if, heaven forbid, you had a child they were raped by a child abuser you can honestly tell be your happy for them to carry on living?
    to be in prison for an average of 4years (theres another stat 4 u) then come out and live next door to your now 2nd child who walks to infant school which is only 200yards away?
    if so your more trusting than i am
    If less people do the crime it's better because less people will suffer and in the unfortunate hypothetical case of you coming to power - less people will die. Are you saying it's better for more people to be victims-as long as the criminas die?! what kind of twisted logic is that?!!
    Killing someone because they killed someone makes you just as bad - believe me there is worse ounishments than death-criminals can be make to feel much worse. Yes i probably would feel like killing them for at least a while but that doesn't make it right does it?! If I feel like killing you, doesn't make in any less of a crime - or is it ok by you?
    Do you agree that facism/racism is a bad thing? because you don't seem bothered by being these things.

    No why is it a bad thing? it just a view, theory or an angle of perception.
    thats why i nevber understand why people are so concerned with bleeping out words, or being PC, words are just wrods, they are either true or they are not. Some one says your fat and you are so what its the truth? some one calls you a paki and you are so what you are? if people get upset by words then i would hate for them ever to be intergated. If the victims of the Holocaust were just called names do you think they would be bothered? ! PUT THINGS INTO PERSPECTIVE PLEASE!

    are you muslim by any chance? are you a rapist? sex offender? a tree hugger? a 'every one is equal' person who is just a sheep who thinks it the in thing to not be objective to the status quo?

    Only dead fish flow with the tide
    Hmm lets see...
    Muslim - no
    Rapist - no
    sex offender - no
    tree hugger - no
    everyone is equal - no

    Though I do admire you ability to make sweeping generalisations if people don't agree with you.
