  • I really like the idea of a lottery system. With a few simple requirements, this could work.

    Of course, actually desiring election immediately disqualifies you.

    • I sometimes think that a random lottery (with criminals, Monarchs and MPs excluded) for a six or twelve month period sitting in a lower house would be far better than having two elected houses. The first house would need the sort of supremecy the UK house of commons has at present (ie. being able to force things through eventually). The people in the second house would be paid, so that no one is discouraged from standing. This suffers when you remember that, in the most part, the people chosen won't be accountable and very probably won't agree with what you think.
