PMs who declare war should have to step down immediately

I’m as sure that there are some holes in this idea as I am that it is unlikely to be original

If a serving Prime Minister institutes a vote to declare war on another nation, for whatever reason, they should no longer be the PM after the vote, whether it is carried or not.

If they don’t believe that it is worth sacrificing their own career over, then they really have no business expecting military personnel to sacrifice their lives.

Stick that in your constitution and smoke it.
