Recalling sovereignty

There is no problem withe allowing international bodies or courts to make decisions which are then implemented in the UK as long as our constitution permits the curtailment of that -the ultimate right to recall sovereignty

Ian Smith Apr 5, 2015

Dear All,

I am posting a quick comment here and in my other ideas.

Firstly, I want to say how much I have enjoyed seeing all of your contributions on this and other ideas and how impressed I am with the range of expertise and erudition which has filled these debates.

Secondly, I wish to put forward a couple of suggestions as to a way forward at this stage.  They are:

A.   I suggest that we all refrain from further voting until the ideas have been refined and represented and have then been debated for a while.  My thinking here is that we will want to see the reshaped ideas and see the comments on those refined ideas before we decide whether they are to be voted up or down,  I do not think that we should refrain from voting on comments but perhaps try not to vote too hastily on them.

B.  Now that the hurly burly of the "Hacking" phase (some of it quite savage) has passed, I hope and wish that we will adopt a more collaborative and less combative approach in our commentary, so that commentary is given a chance to be constructive and really do the job of refining the ideas in question.

C.  I would hope that we can refrain from attacking the very existence of the idea under discussion in this phase or the fact that it has successfully gone through to this phase against the wishes of those who voted it down.  I sincerely hope that the previous critics of an idea, will still respect that it found favour with the crowd and now help to refine the idea in this phase.

Thirdly, I will try my best not to introduce any more typos and mangled phrases! 

Best wishes for the holiday weekend!

please find links to ideas similar to yours. use them to redefine your ideas, modify them...

Alastair Bruton Apr 6, 2015

Thanks for posting the links. There's a lot of overlap in these three ideas, so is there anyway to roll them all into one if the three of us can agree?

laure roux Apr 6, 2015

This is the point make you aware of the overlap. i know that iansmith1 is the owner of a lot of ideas so maybe we could relieve him form this idea. What I suggest is that you Alastair be the owner of the idea on sovereignty and that everyone concerned should comment on your idea that you will then reformulate. if everyone agrees I can close Ian smith1 idea on sovereignty and James doran idea who I have not seen involved that much recently( please feel free to come back as you were our first commentator!) and we all focus on sovereignty through Alastair's idea.

i am trying to do this with all overlapping idead on the platform, it will be a good way to cut down to only relevant ideas for the next phase!

To now comment on this idea please refer to Alastair Bruton's ideas:

this way we cna legislate more effectively together.
