"transform our politics so the state has far less control over you, and you have far more control over the state".
Well Nick, that's a good start, but I notice you are vehemently opposed to any fiddling with the Human Rights Act.. May I remind you of how warped the human rights act can be?
Pakistani Al Queda who want to kill us cannot be deported
Foreign rapists and murderers cannot be deported
The criminal has become the victim
We have an upside down Police Force
A Magistrate may not refer to guilty scum as scum without losing his job
I am passionately in favour of Human Rights but I am also passionately in favour of a fair justice system and passionate about personal repsonsibility. The Human Rights Act denies you your rights to live in peace by empowering those who do not wish to live in peace. One size does not fit all. It is not your human right to demand whatever you wish if it has an adverse effect on others. I'd like to be able to buy whiskey at 3am but it isn't my right to force a shopkeeper to stay up all night serving whiskey. It isn't the right of a feral scrote to bully and intimidate those around him. It isn't your right of free expression to keep your neighbours awake all night by playing Whitney Housten at 120db.
That which adversely affects the lives of others should never be enshrined in law.
