Clearly, the UK has a dysfunctional political system that no longer works. Here is a simple Five Point Plan for a new democracy; 1) State funding for parties with no donations allowed at all from organisations or companies. A cap on private donations of £500 per private citizen per annum. A list of all donations to be available online. 2) Proportional representation. I am not talking about AV or anything that is a compromise here. We need a proper system of PR. I suggest that STV be adopted at a constituency level. 3) Automatic registration of voters once they reach the right age. This should be reduced to 16. 4) Lords reform. The Second Chamber should be reconstituted every five years, following a general election and made up from members chosen from party lists in the proportion of First Preference votes only (under the proposed STV system) cast in the general election. 5) Relocate parliament away from Westminster to a new purpose-built modern building (or campus of buildings) located somewhere more centrally in the UK. This would clearly require a rethinking of the location of the civil service too. However, moving away from London would be more than just symbolic. It would represent a transfer of resources and infrastructure away from the south-east to elsewhere in the country.
