We would like to invite you to our meeting in the House of Commons on September 9th at 6.0pm where we will have three MPs joining us to discuss whether British Politics Is In Terminal Decline.
Peter Hain MP has agreed to host a meeting and he was recently responsible for a Report about how MPs disengage themselves from citizens and how Labour and Lib Dems recruit many of their MPs in house through party professionals so as just to re-invent themselves.
Caroline Dinenage MP will also be a speaker and Caroline was selected in a United States-style open primary pre-election, inviting all constituents, of whatever political affiliation, to complete a postal ballot to select a candidate. Caroline won the Gosport primary.
Also speaking will be John Mann MP who has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Bassetlaw since 2001. John believes in reform of our parliamentary and Party system and ran a primary in his Bassetlaw constituency in 2010 when he asked local Labour voters who they wanted to lead the party.
So all three MPs have been concerned with reform but is it enough to recreate trust or do we need to go further. A Guardian/ICM poll has revealed 56% of people think the biggest problem with Westminster is politicians breaking promises, while 44% are fed up with careerist MPs who “look and sound the same”.
This should be an interesting discussion with three MPs and we would love you to join us.
