Doctrine of Mandate questionWatch
Why is this is the case ??
The whole ideal and scope of your question is perplexing, however the mandate in essence reinforces national politics by the means an Mp under a party banner is subscribed to their policies and ideals and expected to have a consensus on possessing them, this undermines the local politics of mandates by MPs as much of their policies have to be in the party framework and in essence means the party manifesto has a primacy over the individual politics, furthermore the assessment of media, although people take different intakes of media, national policies such as on tax (e.g. dementia tax dubbed by labour) are focused on the national media and more likely to be picked up by the electorate than a local article on promised policy, hence why local second order elections are lower turnout and people have grown more presidential, the doctrine of the mandate has allowed the media to focus on national policies shifting independent politics to national politics.
