Remove MPs’ long stop

I was interested in the decision by the Conservative Shadow Cabinet not to support a long stop on financial services business.

Perhaps MPs and especially the ministers in a Cabinet should accept the same and enable us to punish MPs for their past errors long after they have left office. They have the ability to cause great damage to industries like ours through their inability to think through the consequences and outcomes of their actions.

Would the removal of the political long stop of leaving office make them think future legislation through better if they knew we could bring them to book and financially punish them at any time in the future?
