I'm still waiting for the people of Yeovil to be given the chance to have a re-vote on their MP, given that his expenses irregularities were not exposed until after the election and one of the promises of the parties in government was that legislation would be put through to allow constituents to recall their MP
I received this from my MP (tory) in April.
"The short answer to your question is that currently there is no mechanism to remove a sitting Member of Parliament if they have broken the rules. All a political party can currently do is effectively withdraw their Party membership. This is not acceptable and why I have felt for some time that there is a need for a recall mechanism to allow voters to petition for the removal of their MP where they have been found to have broken the rules. I am pleased that this proposal is now in my own Party's manifesto and has all party backing."
Given that it has "all party backing" and that the scandals were revealed years ago, where is the action? And why does it appear the reverse is happening by the entrenchment of a possibly unpopular government for five years?
