Senior MP Patrick Mercer took £2000 a month for lobbying – will the British public EVER insist on electing incorruptibles?

The most detailed account is to be seen in the Independent.

Probably this is only the tip of the iceberg.

Will the British public ever insist on electing incorruptibles?

  • Entrance requirement: a good record of voluntary and vocational service
  • Make the MP’s brief a full-time job
  • Offer the same pay-levels they earned in ‘real life’
  • Require them and their families to use public health, education & transport
  • No cash expenses: provide office space and an assistant
  • Give passes for transport and B&B in London if living more than 40 miles away.


Only those who are both willing and able to serve the public will then apply.
