Some reforms to consider

1 - Scrap televised debates (the one's that started this year with the 3 main party leaders). That's nothing to do with policy and more to do with media training.

2 - Ban politicians in office and candidates as soon as they are standing for office from appearing on 'entertainment' programmes as guests. No more Cameron, Brown or Clegg on GMTV for example. Once again, that's about personalities and not about policies and just appeals to the lowest common denominator. Basically it's news and news debate programmes only.

3 - Campaign budgets to be centrally controlled and a % of the amount allocated to parties dependant on the number of seats they are contesting. Financial donations to political parties are banned, instead you can donate to this central fund to support democracy as a whole. Therefore it isn't possible to influence party policy with financial incentives.

All of the above to be legislated by an independant body with powers of audit of any party standing for office at any level.
