One of the ways direct democracy is implemented in the UK is through the use of referendums. A referendum is called by the government to allow people to vote directly on an issue. One example of a recent referendum was the 2010 referendum to decide whether the UK should switch from the First past the post vote system to the AV system. The result was a 67.9% majority against changing the system. This shows hope the people can directly influence the way in which their democracy works and so is hence very democratic.
Francesca Dennis Outline, explain and evaluate the responsibilities of the different levels of government in the UK The UK is built up of many different levels of government that all play an essential part in running the country.

The central government runs at a national level and is based in the Palace of Westminster in London.
