Income for Influence

There was once "Cash for Questions" and now 4 MPs have been caught in a sting set up by The Sunday Times and Channel 4, suggesting they could influence government policy for the payment of some extra income. Is this how Representative Democracy has always been?

Interactive Democracy ensures that power comes from voters, not from well funded political lobbyists via subversive MPs. In ID, if pressure groups want to influence policy they will have to influence the electorate themselves.
