The problem with our system is that party leaders are given too much control over elected MP's. After all, the party leader is just another elected MP chosen by party members, not elected by the country as a whole. I have never seen a PM or Premier's name on any of my ballots. My mayor on the other hand.
I agree completely. My point is we could get back to the original system by prohibiting party constitutions that prevent MPs from deposing a PM. Parties will not like this but it would create a system where the PM and cabinet is accountable to MPs as it was originally designed.
