MPs and Councillors will have to ask constituents how they feel on an issue before voting on it themselves. They will have to justify their policy to those constituents, and be given a rating of how well they represented the local people. Party Politics will be weakened by this and it is no bad thing, as I have always regarded Westminster as the last refuge of bullying, where a culture of fear and favour await the M.P. who even dares to think about putting their constituents first, before the party line. I also think online voting will be a reality, once the security issues are sorted out, and that the mobile device will be the main way of interacting with politics online. Turnouts in elections would be higher if it was easier to cast that vote, and social media will engage more of the electorate in the issues of the day. It may well be that we need fewer MPs and levels of representation, if the local voice can be heard louder. Geographically defined constituencies may become an outdated way of representing individuals too. It could become a lot more interactive, and instantaneous, saving parliamentary time debating issues which ought never to have gone on the agenda, or road testing legislatory change more easily. I also hope that the dead hand of Whitehall is made more apparent, and that the unelected State apparatus is similarly held to account.
