Fair Politics

Things will not feel fair as long as our politics is dominated by donations from the super-rich and the expenses scandals.

This means getting big money and corrupt donors out of politics altogether, reducing the number of MPs by 150, giving power over the police and NHS to local communities, changing the voting system to abolish safe seats and giving you the right to sack corrupt MPs.

But the other parties have stood in the way. They want to keep their safe seats and reject moves to make every vote count. Many of their MPs even voted to keep MPs’ expenses secret.

In Cambridge, councillors get the lowest allowances of any council in the country and David Howarth made no personal profit from his time as Member of Parliament.
