One thing I have always believed is that we must move to a system of electing our representatives that gives voters more power. And that means the single transferable vote (STV) - the best system to maximise voter power (although like any system, it has its faults).
This video explains just how crazy the current First Past The Post system is - and ties the issue firmly to the laziness and arrogance of some MPs. Thank you to http://www.voterpower.org.uk/ and the New Economics Foundation.
If you recognise the problem, please don't vote for any Party that will not commit to introducing STV - so that leaves Greens, LibDems and SNP.
Debra, The last sentence you wrote is a little confusing. Presume you mean the Greens, LibDems and SNP are the parties who ARE committed to the introduction of STV?ReplyDelete
