The problem is the slowness of Parliament

Excellent post yet one also has to question what vested interests there have been to take Parliament so long to understand this.

A question should be put `What is stopping Parliament from acting swiftly and LEADING not just representing?`

To my mind it all comes down to two things – our electoral system and the fact that Parliament itself doesn’t know what it’s for.

It’s time to `spread the political wealth` by giving Parliament discrete areas of responsibility and devolving anything else to regions and localities. This can be done on a cost-neutral basis and to achieve this we can reduce the number of MPs.

Should an MP get a very local issue they will be mandated to pass that down to the correct level.
