I’d like to warn fellow readers that there is no mention of “red hot pokers” in the linked text.

The underlying point you make is a return to the ideology of a parliament when it was first proposed; that being an MP is a representation of the people (and is paid accordingly). This is a point lost in the history of politics and needs to be recovered and revised.
What needs to happen is wholesale dissolution of exclusive political party membership, which is an anathema to democracy and liberty, a return to an MP being a representative of people not a political party would revolve many of the other issues.
Of course, those in the pay of political parties would rather not see this happen.
