    HERE is a list from The Daily Telegraph of senior politicians that could lose their seats at the general election.

    They make some interesting reading.

    There is nothing that pleases me more than seeing overpaid ministers and their hangers on lose their seats at a general election.

    That, to me, is democracy at it's best.

    Yes Zath' and that is why all members of parliament should always do their level best for their constituents instead of simply following the party line.

    If they do not do their level best, the ultimate sanction is the ballot box.

    Now I would like to see this power transferred to the direct constituencies when individual members of parliament either abuse or misuse their power or simply break the law while in harness.

    At the moment the constituency committees do not have that power.
