Independents are free to represent the desires and aspirations of the individual and their community, not fodder for a controlling tribal ideology via the chains and shackles of a national party political machine.
Cllr Michael Guest, West Cumbrian Independents
Why elect whipped MPs who cannot be recalled and are powerless when it matters most? Independents do it better.
Recall is a great idea. It should be for voters to decide when they have had enough of their MP.
What we need is a rigorous selection process, run independently from the parties themselves, to ensure that parliamentary candidates are intelligent, have relevant experience of leadership and management, and are of sound character.
First class ideas, about time we saw some policies that will shake up the system.
All strength to your arm. Are we sure that the current flock of MPs will understand true democracy when they experience it. They are such slaves of the current corrupt party system that I have genuine doubts that they will be able to survive the shock.
