Under New Labour and now "The Coalition", the UK has become subject to a Sociofascist, Authoritarian and borderline Kleptocracy.

Fixed Term Elections
I was ambivalent over this, but to me a move to fixed terms brings one important factor: the PM is OUR bitch employee, so HE/SHE should not be in charge of when they get to renegotiate/bid for a new term.
If we have flexi terms, this should be counterbalanced by the right to call for a dissolution of parliament referendum.
If we had the threat of dissolution referendae, I suspect those in Westminster will suddenly get the taste for fixed terms...
