Disappointed with Lib Dem response

It would have been interesting for them to step up with new plans for proportional representation and legalising cannabis for recreational use instead of the weak willed wanting to redo the referendum.

The legalisation would transfer dodgy financial transactions into the taxable realm and redirect them to UK farmers instead of foreign terrorists (if that's really where they previously went). Those new funds could help replace the EU investment into scientific research which would help develop cannabis based medical treatments. It's time to get on this before the USA do it properly.

With proportional representation it'd help a little in avoiding a repeat of the government being so far out of step with the people, though party politics isn't the most democratic option. Can we have a referendum on banning political parties so individual politicians have to get their mandates from the people they represent rather than trying to convince people of the party line?
