    I have proposed my ideas for voting reviews. However since we are so focused on fixing problems. I would like to see if anybody has any idea where it specifically comes from, then we can address that one specific thing. Improving and fixing are two very different thing. So far I have focused on improving, and you are talking about fixing.
    Ok then since we're coming at it from two different approaches, why not team up to solve the problems?

    Congratulations to all those on 100%

    Regarding how to reduce the number of elections taking place, I think we should keep in mind that another EU election is unlikely to occur next term (I think it was a one off to coincide with the RL election?)

    It might also make sense to expand the period of time a seat can remain vacant for up until a general election.

    To be honest I can see 3 clear blocks in the voting review:

    1st - Lots of red absent from the Government
    2nd - A lot of Ayes,Noes and Abstentions from the Opposition
    3rd - From UKIP and the Libers I see lots of excepts

    Come on lets play the game and redistribute then those new MP's might feel as if they can contribute more to voting, debate and legislation.

    Whoever you think has the best manifesto and agree with most, that's the whole point of elections.

    This house can be improved by having cross party boards and committees for things.
    I agree with your other ideas, but committees are soul-destroyingly dull.

    Are you able to download the Excel document in the link at the top of the post? If not, I can probably attach it through TSR for you.
