I submitted a contribution to the Parliament competition for a Preamble to a written constitution in October 2014. I did not win the competition, but along with all of the submitters have been invited to the Palace of Westminster to meet the Constitutional Committee.
Here is my submission.

“A voice for the people, a voice for the community. Giving those who are without a voice, the way to make a difference to help this and every generation to follow, create fairness, and equality and maintain liberty for all. Our constitution is a balance of what went before, it shows where we have been and what we have created and how we have arrived at the decisions of today, and shows the way to the future.
Balance the words and the deeds to the actions and using the law to illustrate right to each and every citizen without fear or favour and not for profit or fame but to endeavour to deliver all from the insecurity of bias and hatred. Showing no privilege or prejudice to anyone, but treating each citizen as unique to themselves and deserving to be considered so. The constitution shows and gives direction to enable trust in each decision and future proof the word of parliament and whose who try to establish a country where it is safe, caring and just.
This balance is then illustrated in national regional and local government and all the works of the nation for health education, and commerce. Giving the citizens the example of fairness and a just conscience to face the world and bring peace for themselves and each other on the planet, and showing empathy via reason, and reflection and discussion with accountability, clarity, collaboration, equity, and stability.”


It seems everywhere online there are organisations and individuals commenting on topics of public interest.

Chief Executive of the Patients Association, said,
“It is  unacceptable that a two week waiting time to see a GP maybe going to become the norm, “

“38 Degrees” are collecting names for a petition regarding private firms and social service provision.

Not noticed any comments on the topics seen on the web and social media being relayed by the TV very much. There is so much information for example on the Parliament website there could be a complete series on the TV on how Parliament works.  I know there is a channel where one can view discussions and debates, but the real work could be given an in depth structure and used to teach the public how it is all put together and legislation works.

I attended a Parliament Outreach session awhile ago on the workings of the European Parliament.  These sessions go on around the United Kingdom-they need more publicity. I also studied what was called British Constitution for a GCE examination. People were not impressed, but then it is a very useful subject in which to have some  knowledge. Education is not only about reading about a topic but having experience in real life, whereby one can apply it and connect it to events. An holistic view of the world.
