I don't often mention politics or National issues but this is something I feel strongly about. I think the present system of first past the post is out dated and elitist. I also think PR and AV are complicated. What I do think is that we need some sort of change to get people to actually get out and vote. I don't know what the answer is but staying with first past the post just because it is how we have always done it that way is no answer. I heard one of the Tories I cant remember his name on the radio this morning and his attitude was we have always done it and will continue to do so, RUBBISH. That sort of attitude is exactly what Politicians are disliked for. I know PR and AV are not perfect but with the current system only being used by a fraction of those who are able to vote that doesn't seem to be engaging the voters either. Hague William Hague sounded like a pompous twit on the radio this morning. I just read a quote from Nick Clegg on the current system :-
The pro-AV campaign launched its programme in September, Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg saying the current system was "not fit for purpose" and "a relic that deserves to be consigned to the past".
