Welcome for 100 Day Plan to Fix Our Broken Political System

May 29, 2009 10:00 AM

Take Power back logoAndrew Simpson, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Northampton North constituency, has welcomed the announcement by the Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Nick Clegg MP, of a 100 Day plan to fix our broken democracy.

"The expenses scandal is only symptom of a system that is broken and not working" said Andrew "If we just tinker around at the edges it will not be enough to clear up politics and restore faith in our democracy. These plans announced by Nick Clegg are nothing short of a revolution that will finally move us finally into the 21st century".

Liberal Democrat plans include:

*Give people the right to sack MPs

*Stop all big party political donations

*Elect the House of Lords

*Make the voting system fair - so that governments can't just get all that power and all that money with only a minority of you voting for them

*Put an end to self serving politics and put you back in charge

"In Northampton our MP's have perhaps been less selfish in the claims they have made - although even here some of the claims have to be questioned, such as for new heating systems and tax advice work, also actually having a second home in the constituency you represent has to be wrong in my view" continued Andrew

The Liberal Democrats have launched a campaign website - see link below for details.
