The out-of-date way MPs are elected to Westminster is failing voters
“It’s for the voters in any individual constituency to look at the record of their MP and decide whether they’ve got the right priorities” said Justice Secretary Dominic Raab. Voters can certainly look at the record of the MP, but as long as we have First Past the Post there is little they can do about it. As the expenses scandal in 2009, and the 2020 second jobs scandals show, far too many MPs feel safe in their seats.
Voters shouldn’t have to elect a candidate they disagree with, to kick out an MP who is too busy with a second job to pay them attention. Sign our petition to introduce a fairer, more proportional system to elect MPs.
