A question

I don’t usually do the politics thing. I leave that for those who are better at it and who have more interest, but I do need to put this question out there. It’s aimed at the UK, but with a little translation it should work elsewhere too…

Should MPs¹ be paid according to how closely they stick to their pre-election promises to their constituents?

I think they should, based on an MP’s salary, getting a percentage of that given based on the percentage of pre-election promises kept. I know they have to toe the party line to an extent, but they are there to represent the people, not the party elite. What do you all think? Answers on a postcard, or to your local MP.

¹ Member(s) of Parliament not Military Police, just in case you were wondering.
