~70,000 constituents and only MP job. MPs to ONLY serve 2 terms unless promoted to official position

If US presidents can only serve 2 terms, why can't MPs.

I would also add that no-one should be able to stand for MP, if their spouse or immediate relative (parent, sibling, child) has been an MP in the last 2 terms.

Suggest a commission reviews such topics as...

No Oxford PPE (Phylosphy, Polices, Economics) graduate can stand for MP, unless they have an MSc, Phd or Degree in another field, or have worked for a commercial business for 10 years. If they are truly gifted at (E)conomics, then try LSE.

No chairty worker can become an MP unless they have equally worked 10 years in a commercial business sector.

We need to shake up the talent pool, to ensure MPs have real life experience, and are not some 18 year old newbie with NO experience of how the real world is funded.

... so we get MPs who are effective (not just well-connected within party circles)
