We need a radical change to Parliament

A couple of days ago a friend of mine posted a comment on Facebook which is shown below. His comment reflects on the way that Boris Johnson has behaved. He is one of many people who has a view based on the recent information of the behaviour of Johnson over the last 20months.

Boris is a shambles, a liar, corrupt and a complete tosser… But they are all the same and we would all be in lockdown or restricted like the rest of Europe & the UK with anyone else. I don’t no if watching the witch hunt is funny because he deserves it or sad because the people he stood by are ratting on him. Be carful what you wish for, sometimes it’s better the devil you know!!

Many other people I am close to appear to want Johnson to go and indeed I am calling for that as I will in tomorrow’s blog here and in the Brighton Argus Column. However as my friend has called out, there will be many challenges if he goes out of Number 10. What is clear is that we need a very different approach moving forward. One of the aspects is that the UK Prime Ministers, like US Presidents are not held to account when they in power which is clearly a major threat to our Nation based on the current activity by Boris Johnson. Although he can be removed by his Political Party there is no way for his Party to be removed from controlling the Government until they decide to hold a General Election. We clearly need a major change, both nationally and at a local level via Proportional Representation.
