Perhaps, but from where we sit in Australia with (a) getting heard on issues (b) getting action on issues, the quarterly referendums in Switzerland look so good.

I think something like what Jacqui Lambie has done would make politics more inclusive.

Not sure how the Murdoch effect would play into it though. Or populism.

PS. It’s not that different to 100,000 people writing a letter to Jacqui.
