Hi Owen,

You are correct, and perhaps that answer was incorrectly worded but the
principle still applies.  What I should have said was that any individual
is free to propose any policy and should the community agree with the
proposal it will be passed, should they not agree with it will not be
passed.  If that individual is proposing a policy at the behest of a
particular organisation or government is immaterial.
