Make My Vote Count!

Just helping to spread the word. I've been a long-time advocate of PR in Parliament and the UK's Electoral process is long overdue for a change. I remember when Labour also supported this policy (oh yes, BEFORE they managed to get power themselves...:p)

"From The Independent's Campaign for Democracy:

Dear Mr Blair,

I believe that the result of this month's election, in which your government was elected with a 67-seat majority on 36% of the popular vote and with the support of 22% of the electorate, is a subversion of our democracy.

I call on you, in your final term as Prime Minister, to institute urgent reform of our voting system so that the British people are encouraged to believe that their votes count and that the result of a general election is more representative of their wishes.

Check out their petition."
