The people can vote either yes or no

I have just listened to Graham Brady, Chairman of the 1922 Committee, advocating a presidential system of government on the PM programme (BBC Radio 4).

This is, I'm afraid, a non-starter.

However, with the advent of computerised voting I do not see why all registered voters should not be able to vote on legislation before the House of Commons.  The MPs can prepare the laws, the Cabinet fine tune them.  And then the people can vote either yes or no.

That would be true democracy.
