Graduated Elections

Rather than having a general election every five years, a portion of the seats should come up for election, say every year or perhaps two. So one fifth of the composition of the government might be up for election in a given year. In this way, the adversarial nature of British politics might be overcome. The Parliament would be able to organically renew itself, and the 4/5ths of MPs not for election could continue the business of legislating.
