The Independent continues it’s electoral reform rant

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Today, The Indy have officially launched their ‘Campaign for Democracy’. Whilst I’m not wild about the name of the campaign, and I’m a little bored of their continual front pages and leaders about the story, I am in general agreement that this country is in need of some form of electoral reform, and would encourage you to sign their petition. Even if it only stimulates debate about which direction our voting system should be taking, then it will have been worth the effort. So give it a click, and fill in the form.
