Bring in the last of the Chartist reforms

IT'S not just Clegg and Cameron whose heads should roll for the lies told in their election manifestos.

All the MPs who signed the pledge to oppose tuition fees, opposed increases in VAT, early and deepening cuts in public spending and the rejection of a new generation of nuclear power stations and have now changed their minds on entering government should be made accountable.

In 1838, the Chartists produced a six-point plan, five of which have been implemented.

The one still outstanding is their call for annual parliaments. A very important point, it would ensure that MPs carried out the voters' wishes or face being voted out of office after 12 months. Bring it on!
