The other issue with direct democracy is that people can vote selfishly - without thinking (or caring about) the effect on future generations or those less fortunate than themselves.
On balance, who do you feel you would vote more closely with the interests of your children and grandchildren? You who wants the best for them, or an MP desperately scrabbling for votes to get into a more senior position/keep their job 3 or 4 years from now?
