by a reader from Henley-on Thames R.R.

'THE HOT AIR being genertaed about the proposed alternative vote system id a red herring because AV does nothing to address the biggest injustice of all-the imbalance between votes cast and seats won.

which is pretty good,

or the even better single transferable vote(STV) used in


STV is very practical as it doesn't lead to the election of lots of smaller parties; at the same time,STV leads the way as the most
