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.

What about taking away the powers of appointment that the Prime Ministers over time have gained? What about sending to jail the party whip? What about eliminating party platforms, and having the individual MPs express their personal opinions to their own constituents?

There are countless practices in our current system that make it a party system, far removed from the ideal MPs accountable to their constituents you claim.
