Time to change the voting system

Posted in general election 2015, Politics, voting reform with tags , , on May 11, 2015 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

it is time for the first past the post system to go. Again we have a government in power with 36% of the vote. I am no fan of UKIP yet they polled 4m votes and one seat in Parliament. The system favours the two big parties and the Conservatives even more as they will now change the boundaries and reduce the number of MP’s to 600. This is there electoral ‘reform’ and one that will keep them in power past 2020.

So what can we do? Please support this petition for a fairer and more proportional voting system. Together we can force the agenda on electoral reform.
