End the last rotten borough - the City of London

Democratic elections to the City of London Corporation - end the practice of giving votes to City firms in elections to what is, in fact, a local council. The constitution should prevent local councils from such practices by adopting the following wording:

 

"Votes, in both general and local elections, can only be cast by human persons. No vote can be cast by a 'legal person' or 'corporate person', only by an individual in accordance with the rest of the constitution."

Now we've entered the refining phase, how do you think this idea could be refined to take into accoun the comments from the 'Hacking the Content' phase into concise proposition?

  Please continue to vote for/against ideas and feel free to change you original vote.

I agree completely.  Concentrated businesses in city districts of Manchester, Bristol, Hlasgow, Birmingham don't get these extra privileges and have to comply with the local authorities running them.
