Constitutional Change

A fixed term parliament of  say four years would remove some manipulative power from  the executive. However, a government elected by a minority of voters might become highly unpopular long before the end of the fixed term.  In the event of such a situation  there should be a power of recall  by a percentage of the voters.   As well as the usual parties listed on ballot papers there should be a “None of the above” choice.   In the event of this choice being the  winner, the most popular party should form the government but be required to hold a further election at the end of two years rather than the full term of four  years.
This system would return a lot of  power to voters but also hopefully  increase the power of parliament itself.   There would then be no need for us to dabble with any PR type of  electoral system.
