Direct Democracy is a part of the Conservative movement. It is a vehicle for Tory MP Douglas Carswell and MEP Dan Hannan. It declares that its mission is 'to shift governmental powers back, from Brussels to Westminster, from Whitehall to town halls, from the state to the citizens. Power would be dispersed among communities, through localism and through referendums.'
