One case I'd make is that it's not just the system in narrow terms, (i.e. the election system) as Scotland can demonstrate. Things were maybe more consensual 2007-2011, but not really in a way that would seem to map well to Westminster where you've got to do things more serious than just allocating funding from a block grant.
Although I can't say I'm much keen on PR anymore. Increasingly I've started to pin my hopes on a party just getting a majority and ramming through the kind of policies necessary, since any attempt to compromise with other parties will result in an increased chance of received wisdom seeping in and killing it, if we want to lead the way rather than be lead anyway.
Maybe AV+ would've been an interesting experiment. I'm still interested that nothing came of the Jenkins Report.
To be fair there can be some questions that are just government puffery. I'm sure the party actually gives MPs "suggested questions" just to fill time, though I can't remember where I heard that.
>Q2. Unemployment in my constituency is 21% lower than it was at the time of the last election. We have had a 90% increase in apprenticeship start-ups, manufacturing output is up and business activity is at a 32-month high in the west midlands. Does the Prime Minister agree that, due to the hard work of my constituents and people across the country, the Government’s long-term economic plan is working and delivering benefits to every region of the United Kingdom? 
I mean yeah, the PM's going to turn around and say "No I don't agree, I've met your constituents and they are bastards. I wish the plagues of Egypt upon your constituents. That is my short term plan."
