So you want to be my MP?

It's taken long enough and a truck-load of scandal for a political party to advance any notion that we the people should be able to turf out a sitting MP should they ya know not do their job.

Imagine if this were the business model that both Labour and Conservative seem to worship:

"So you want to be my MP, are you qualified?"
"I think so"
"Okay I'll give you a trial run of five years we'll give you the money for a new house in London and pay for your expenses. If during this period it turns out you're unfit for the job we'll still employ and pay you but we'll let you go at the end of your term with a full pension oh and you can keep the house"
"Sounds fair"
