Promises, Promises

With the Election approaching here in the UK (A farce in which I will not be participating) Ive been thinking how the current system could be improved and what changes might actually make me want to take part. The simplest and most effective way I can think of is for each party to select 10 core policy promises on which they will campaign. Then once the winner has been in power for two years these promises will be evaluated to determine how well the party has done in keeping to their pledges. If they have made no effort whatsoever or it is clear that the promises were undeliverable another election should be called immediately. Obviously, sometimes unforseen external factors will play a part and these would have to be taken into consideration.
If politicians knew they were going to be held accountable for their campaign promises the whole process would suddenly become alot more meaningful to me and I may be tempted to put my x in a box. Really I would prefer to do away with personality politics altogether and start letting people vote on a whole multitude of issues but thats a change I dont see happening anytime soon!
