OPINION: Recent opinion of MPs (and, of course, a poll) are intended to soften us to acceptance of extending the term of Parliament from three to four years.
Beware of the gerrymandering going on here.
We are assured that no other country has such a short term by proponents for its introduction.
However, we are the only sovereign nation among them without an upper house or senate to keep our servants on the hill in line, which is why we should not under any circumstances countenance this ploy, until we have such in place first.
