An actual and meaningful reform plan has been offered by Britain's new ruling coalition:
The plan, as laid out by the deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg, would roll back a proliferation of “nanny state” laws, non-elected administrative bodies and surveillance systems — many of them a product of Labour’s 13 years in power — that critics say have curbed individual freedoms and enlarged state powers to a degree unrivaled by most other democratic societies.
These plans also include changes to the voting system, creating a fully elected House of Lords, stabilizing the ruling party by requiring 55% to vote to dissolve Parliament, and a 50% requirement for MPs to win reelection, rather than the simple majority they now have.

If only some of these changes occur, there will be profound implications for Britain's power structure. The British people would have a much greater impact on their out of control government, which would hopefully reign in its rampant overspending and centralization efforts.
