Who Said This?
But the democratic part of democratic conservatism reflects our insistence on democratic accountability and reform in government.
We believe that Parliament must be reformed so that individual MPs can have a meaningful voice; that an appointed, patronage-ridden Senate is a disgrace; and that citizens must be able to have a direct say over governing their country through such means as initiative and referenda.
This is the Reform part of our heritage, and this conviction that government must be more open, more free, and more democratic is a central part of our political creed.
