I think I recall hearing that there’s a protocol in place in the event of some sort of government liquidating disaster.
Mandarins from the various departments of state would form an interim administration. In the event of London being subjected to an apocalyptic attack (thereby rendering the mandarin plan a non-starter), there’s said to be some form of super-council comprised of local authority chief executives….and if that happened expenses really would shoot through the roof!
I’m going on the Tony Benn idea that as a nation we are really run by big business and the civil service, and it matters little in the grand scheme of things who we ‘elect’ to govern us.
So hence my ‘no’.
-parliament would be replaced by lots of seasoned local councillors (where we get most of our mp’s from anyway) and the new commons MP’s would continue voting for their parties and their investors err, supporters.
