Yes! Probably more so than voting for a typical party political puppet. Especially an MP who will have a Direct Democratic mandate as I would have.
Not many people realise that there are already many successful Independent politicians in office:
The people of Hartlepool elected a man in a monkey suit for Mayor. They’d simply had enough of the current political party offerings. Like most voters, they’d realised a career politician wasn’t going to look after them but would look after himself and his political party. That isn’t democracy. The people of Hartlepool showed their continuing contempt for the party system and the effectiveness of an Independent by re-electing their major twice more.
