Douglas Carswell speaking in favour of open primaries

When you have finished laughing, remember that the 'political reform' section of the Coalition Agreement said:
We will fund 200 all-postal primaries over this Parliament, targeted at seats which have not changed hands for many years. These funds will be allocated to all political parties with seats in Parliament that they take up, in proportion to their share of the total vote in the last general election.
I think there is a lot to be said for this proposal, but nothing has been heard of it since 2010.
