“Oliver Colville!!! I have written to this sorry excuse for an MP twice, the first time I received a fob off letter designed to placate my anger at the waste of my (and your) money on foreign aid. The second time was reference to an ECHR ruling with regard to DNA retention, which was also mentioned in the partys election manifesto. To date no reply on this one, must be too difficult. It is fairly obvious to me that Colville is going to be a one term mp and hopefully will sink into obscurity in 2015. I just hope that peoples memories of the previous administration arn't clouded by the contempt in which the current incumbent holds us..”

“I think that MP's should only be able to represent their local regions. If you were born and raised in an area or have permanently resided and worked in the area for a certain amount of time before becoming eligable to stand as a MP. How often does a candidate move to an area where say for example they always have a large conservative vote. Mr Cameron will send the people he wants to have as MP's to these areas to ensure they are voted into power. The result is that these people are then able to get into parliment and tow the party line. Always voting for what Mr Cameron wants with little or no regard for the wants or needs of his local constituants. This we are told is democracy. When we vote, we vote in a private booth and it is confidential. MP's in parliment when voting on the latest bill have to choose between two doors, one labeled Yay, the other Nay. So if someone votes against the party line it is known, I seem to remember Mo Mowlem a minister voting against the government on the vote about whether we should invade Iraq or not. She was rapidly fired as a minister and relegated to the back benches. So if you vote for what you believe in you risk losing your position in the cabinate or support of the party in the next election resulting in their days of being an MP over.The clincher being is that the only people that can change this are the ones that benefit from it. And as we know from the widespread expenses debacle they're not exactly the most trustworthy bunch in the country.I have heard it said that we have the least democratic democracy in the democratic world, and I'm inclined to believe it.”
