Instead of tinkering with PR voring systems we should completely overhaul our system of Government.

There should be a total separation of powers. No-one in Government should be sitting in the Commons or the Lords.

The Executive (Prime Minister) should be directly elected. This should short-circuit the debate about PR.

MPs should continue to be elected on the current system. As the Government is directly elected, we would hopefully see more independent MPs, and begin to transfer power away from the political parties who have such low membership as to be totally unrepresentative.

House of Lords to be elected in a separate electoral cycle.

Fixed term 4 year Parliaments.

Monarchy can be retained or not .

All subject to a referendum, of course.

Why is this idea important?

To establish democracy in England for the first time in history.
