Hi Paul,

Thank you for the link! Hope you are well.

Paul, What do you like about the Alternative Vote? I assume you realise that it is no more proportional than the present system - so we could still have parties getting 55% of the seats with 35% of the votes (Labour could have come third in terms of votes in 2005 and still have had most seats!). How can anyone defend that and still claim to be a democrat?

Neil, if we had AV in 2005, Labour would have had a larger majority. It would also help cement the relationship between political parties and the constituencies they are in, plus MP's would still have a constituency of their own to represent.
