Limit House of Commons to 450 MPs

The Westminster Parliament is one of the largest in the World.   It has become institutionally corrupt.   In 2008, of the 123 hospitals under construction 83 were in areas represented by the governing Labour Party.   Twice as much lottery funding was going to constituencies of Cabinet members as was going to members of the Shadow Cabinet.   Of the 23 railway stations that were being closed 20 were in seats held by the opposition parties.   There needs to be a cultural shake up.   Parliament fails to hold the Government to account.   Perhaps the shake-up could be achieved if it was reduced in size to say 450 MPs.
                The House of Commons should be reduced to 450 MPs.
