Scrap it

Have your say

The Electoral Society told us that the 2015 General Election outcome was the most disproportionate in history.

The ‘nasty Tory party’ received only 36 per cent of the votes cast yet got 51 per cent of the 650 seats available. UKIP got 12 per cent of the votes cast yet only got one MP or 0.2 per cent of the 650 seats. Under proportional representation UKIP would have got 80 seats and the Greens 20 seats.

Is it now time to scrap this divisive and archaic first past the post, which certainly does not now represent the will of the people, and replace it with the much fairer PR system?
