1) Replace first past the post with proportional representation;
2) Get rid of party whips. All votes in parliament should be free votes;
3) A by-election should be triggered if an MP, elected on a party ticket, votes against a set number of his/her party's manifesto promises;
4) A general election should be triggered if the government reneges on a set number of its manifesto promises;
5) Scrap devolution - have one set of laws for the whole country. (This may lead to the break up of the UK).
6) Harmonise the working of local authorities to give a more consistent approach to recycling, provision of sevices, etc.
