The Political Parties and Elections Bill - "tinkering"

For anyone watching this area, which unfortunately not many of the mainstream media are, there is a bill going through parliament.

I have to say that I support my local MP's stance on this, which is that the bill is tinkering, when full reform is needed.

What's the point of having had the Hayden Philips Review, to then go ahead and fail to reform funding.

As David Howarth rightly points out, there is a crisis of confidence, not just in financial markets, but also in our democracy.  The government should ask the people what to do on this one.

Perhaps this is a subject for a referendum!
