Is there any other country or system which in your opinion empowers ordinary people more than here in the United Kingdom?

Yes.Switzerland, Its broken down in small sections like say Manchester and Liverpool and these places are run like mini countries, they goven themselves, raise their own taxes and so on but all this is done by using the politicians worst nightmare the REFERENDUM, they use it on all major decisions so at the end of the day its the people who decide not some jumped up politician with a personal agenda to fulfill, and the politicians are all local so all of the decisions that are made effect them as well, not like our out of touch,nest feathering lot like we have, if we ran England like the Swiss rule their Country we would be the best Country in the world, so its simple REFERENDUMS are what we need
