Do not allow MPs to vote on legislation not affecting their constituents

Comment 4th July 2010

MPs should be stopped from voting on legislation that does not affect their constituents. For example: Scottish MPs should not be allowed to vote on issues and legislation that only affects England or England and Wales.

Why does this matter?

This system is totally undemocratic. At present  MPs can vote on these contentious issues with absolutly no comeback come election time. They could even vote for unpopular legislation not affecting their constituents just to annoy those affected if they thought this would make their constituents happy.  It and can and has already allowed laws to be passed that would not have been without the support of MPs in this enviable position. It is a democratic outrage and must be stopped
