MPs leaving the parliamentary parties to which they were elected, should legally trigger a by-election.

Eric Joyce & Patrick Mercer have both been forced to leave the parliamemtary parties to which they were elected, but have refused resign their seats in parliament.

We believe that a by-election should be automatically triggered when MPs leave or are dismissed from the parliamentary party to which they were elected.
