Broken democracy in Westminster

We are trying to run a modern country with an old and out-dated democratic system.

The principle of local representatives being sent to Westminster may have been appropriate in 1850 but it is outrageously ineffective today. MPs come mainly from party lists, they do a marginal job of representing their local constituents in national parliament, and they do a disastrously useless job of providing oversight and debate on national policies.

This report from the committee responsible for the effectiveness of government tells the story. 

LIFE will restore Britain’s great democracy, and give the people effective local and national representation.
