IN PRAISE OF

Scotlands voting system. A mix of first past the post and then a regional list. This enables people to have 7 or 9 (I cannot remember the exact figures) MP’s to be able to approach. It also enabled the tories with 5 seats to have an extra 26 seats in the parliament, Labour to go from 1 to 22, and the Greens to go from 0 to 8. Thus if vote for a party which is well supported but get no initial MP’s you are still represented. Something similar happens in Wales. Of course the nasty party will not change, in fact it is thinking of reverting to first past the post in Englands mayoral votes. Oh and introducing visual ID to allow you to vote – despite there being no evidence of voter fraud (this is a trick learnt from party Trump to reduce voter participation by the poor and BAME communities.
