I suspect not. But it's source isn't some random person, it is:

http://www.gazette-news.co.uk/news/4528406.MP_calls_on_voters_to_draft_new_law_o.../

Clacton and Harwich MP Douglas Carswell, who appears to have created the
page back last year.

I like the principle, but the standard of comments, and as you point
out, the issues, indicate sadly that many of the electorate aren't very
well informed so no one will listen to them anyway.

I think, re Part P and part L, letters to one's own MP is the better
bet, and the more traditional way. At least in principle, he can pass
them to the Minister responsible directly even if he can't be arsed to
act on them himself (or even understand the issues). Let's face it - why
would my millionaire ex banker MP care about windows - he's the last
person who's likely to dirty his hands when he can get a "little man" in.
