Abstract

With a Recall Bill featuring in the Queen’s Speech, now is the time to ask the question whether, in this case, no legislation is better than some legislation (given the specific provisions of this Bill). Two other options have their respective supporters inside parliament and are likely to feature in deliberations upon the Bill. David Judge argues that both options, in their own way, point to the need to have a fundamental national debate about what we expect of our MPs in order to consider how best to hold them to account for failing to do what we expect them to do.
