Pretty much everything you outlined in your post.

Regardless of party. If someone has lied or threatened to break the law or indeed broken the law etc in the real world that would be P45 and exit via the nearest door. In the case of MP that would be a by election ( as opposed to the current buy election).

If the threat of instant dismissal for certain activities was in the contract. it may change behaviors etc.

I simply expect more accountability for words and actions and would want more rigor on how one is able to be appointed as an MP. I know any fool can become an MP, but don't want fools running the country.
