Would limiting the number of terms an MP can sit in parliament improve the UKs political process? Pro. It would mean the end of 'professional politicians'. Those people with no experience of the real world (E.G. Blair and Brown). It would reduce the likelyhood that civil servants will become beholden to particular politicians (e.g. chiefs of police) As the possibilities for being a career politician will be limited, those who take up being an MP will do so out of principle and will likely be experienced in life when they decide to try for election. Con. The experience gained by the politician would be lost after his/her/its' two terms.
