Good for population control. And who cares about politcians anyway? They're a special kind of evil.

I don’t see how ‘maintaining democracy’ and ‘removing the right to vote’ can be considered anything other than juxtaposed ideas.

I oppose this naturally, but I’m going to play along. Why is this a good thing? This bill is lacking notes, which I believe to be an important part of any bill.

I'm going to point out that this bill would only stop MP and local elections in England since the writers omitted to understand that there's not just one part of the UK that elects MPs...

So in legal reality, this would mean Welsh, Northern Irish and Scottish MPs would still be elected as normal. I don't think this bill was thought out.

I think its clearly laid out at the start tbh. People are sick of being asked the same question every 5 years. The people have chosen who they want to govern the country and this will should be a red upon.
