Make the Parliamentary Whip System Illegal
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
The Parliamentary whip system is antiquated and discredited. It relegates party members to mere delegates for their party rather than representing their constituents effectively. With the UK leaving the EU the checks and balances provided by elected MEPs and the ECJ at the EU level are soon to be lost to UK citizens, as are our automatic rights to move to EU countries more aligned to our views. We will arguably be the least democratically represented citizens in Europe. One way to help stem the looming democratic deficit in the UK is to make MPs much more directly responsive to constituents and less so to political parties. Changes of public view on a given topic will become relevant more quickly than now possible.
