- The Government
- United Kingdom
For centuries, the UK has used the first-past-the-post system to elect its MPs. This system is out-dated and promotes inequality.
The two main parties (Labour and Conservative) are over-represented and the rest are under-represented. Most importantly, there is no proportionality.
The Labour government is currently running our country with the support of a mere 35.2% of the voters. The Green party can get 15% and not win a single seat.Is this fair?
I propose a system where, if a party gets 10% of the votes it will also get 10% of the seats in Parliament. ie, a FAIR system.
