Should MPs be more accountable to the tax payer?

Despite the fact that it is the UK tax payer who funds the UK, who are our MPs actually accountable to between General Elections? What can the tax payer do to ensure they get good value for money or at least a return?

As the economic decline in the UK deepens we are seeing more and more evidence that UK MPs are totally out of touch with the real world and they do not feel the pain of the tax payer. Is it time that the tax payer had more of a say in how accountable the government of the day is to the people who fund the country?

While we have a range of pressure groups working on behalf of the UK tax payer, what power do they really have? What changes have they actually brought about? The answer is probably very little power and very few changes.

Quite how this increased accountability to the tax payer would work remains to be seen but more and more the UK population are being taken for granted and led up the garden path. Perhaps if all MPs were more accountable to the tax payer we may start to see a return on OUR investment?
