Well, off down south for a couple of days - so blogging may be a bit light ...
... various Electoral Reform Society (ERS) events/meetings to attend and bound to be significant debate around the latest moves on a potential referendum on the UK electoral system.
Of course, straight AV (the alternative vote) is not proportional - but if the Constitutional Reform Bill is to be amended in order to get rid of FPTP (first past the post), by a system that uses preferential voting (AV), is it really impossible that the Bill could be amended just a bit further to preferential voting in multi-member wards (STV)?
... or amended to seek preferential voting for all elections - local (English and Welsh) and Lords, as well as Westminster?
... unlikely - maybe?
But not impossible.
