Before the last election, politicians were queuing up to promise this right to “recall” MPs who break the rules or their promises. But now they’re safely in Westminster, they seem to be going off the idea. A huge, people-powered push from thousands of us will make more MPs state their support publically and could lead to the government deciding to support these measures.
The government has published its own ideas about recalling MPs, but as I said when I spoke to the Political and Constitutional Reform Committee on Thursday, these proposals which would put all the control in the hands of party whips and parliamentary committees1. For those MPs who’d rather not listen to voters between elections, that’s going to be a big relief.
Make MP's (including the PM & Ministers) ACCOUNTABLE & we make them less Corruptible!
