Well, at least something is still working in the Palace of Westminster.

'The Speaker of the House of Commons has announced that Fiona Onasanya is no longer MP for Peterborough, following a successful recall petition.

'The recall petition was opened after Ms Onasanya was convicted of perverting the course of justice and was subsequently sentenced to imprisonment for 3 months. The petition was open for six weeks from Tuesday 19 March to Wednesday 1 May 2019. The petition was signed by 19,261 people, exceeding the 6,967 signatures needed to be successful. A by-election will be called in the constituency.'

more a case of hands tied I suspect. Now all we need is Bercow gone and things may revert to something akin to normality.
 
There is an element of truth in that-unfortunately we can't turn back time to that day in May 1997
Another case of 'you got what you voted for; didn't Mr. Bliar and New Labore turn out well. So remember, 'Things can only get better'!
