Don't Tell Me We Live In A Democracy
Isn't it wonderful that someone can become an MP eight years after their first attempt with fewer votes yet a higher proportion of the total vote? Three cheers for voter apathy and constituency boundaries.
The fairest solution would be a bicameral system with one chamber elected on a constituency first past the post basis and the second elected on a national proportional represention basis with party lists.
Or have a one man one vote system (it's Gordon Brown who has the only vote) like we have now. Except I'm the dictator. Where do I start?
