No because nothing would ever get done in parliament, as we can see from the current hung parliament predicament

I'd make a smaller change;

Remove parties from the ballot. Just have the candidate's name.

Very few seats would then be 'safe' with people voting out of blind loyalty to a particular party - they'd have to know who their party's candidate is.

Yes I do. My preference is the system used in the Republic of Ireland, of multi-member constituencies. I think this would lead to more women MPs, more from ethnic minorities, and each person is more likely to have someone from a party they support, or an independent MP.
