Welcome for 100 day plan to fix broken political system

June 16, 2009 12:44 AM

Take back power logoMichael Mullaney, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary spokesman for Hinckley and Bosworth constituency, has welcomed the announcement by the Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Nick Clegg MP, of a 100 Day plan to fix our broken democracy.

"The expenses scandal is only symptom of a system that is broken and not working" said Michael.

"If we just tinker around at the edges it will not be enough to clear up politics and restore faith in our democracy. These plans announced by Nick Clegg are nothing short of a revolution that will move us finally into the 21st century".

Liberal Democrat plans include:

*Give people the right to sack MPs

*Stop all big party political donations

*Elect the House of Lords

*Make the voting system fair - so that governments can't just get all that power and all that money with only a minority of people voting for them

*Put an end to self serving politics and put people back in charge

The Liberal Democrats have launched a campaign website promoting their plans at http://www.takebackpower.org/
