Representation should be given in parliament to people who are in constituencies where the winning candidate does not stand in parliament. Even though they may have won with a majority and constituents may know they will not stand in the commons, those people who did not vote for the winner will not be represented.

Perhaps representation could be given by MPs from neighbouring constituencies in the form of surgeries and questions to be asked. Either way, representation is the important issue here.

Why is this idea important?

Although not taking the oath can be considered a from of democratic protest, a large number of people cannot speak to an MP and have a question asked in the commons on their behalf.

This is undemocratic.
