Looking at politics beyond and outside the Westminster parliament.

The 2010 general election is likely to be marked by the biggest turnover of MPs since the Second World War. There will be lots of new faces, but what about those backbench MPs who have already announced their intention to stand down in the wake of what has been a miserable year for the House of Commons? Jim Hancock considers what lies in store for a former parliamentarian in the world beyond Westminster and talks to some of those who are saying goodbye about what has gone wrong in Parliament and what needs changing.
