A Pre-Emptive strike!

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Basically chaps, im aware that in tomorrows aftermath of the local elections lots and lots of people will cry "proportional representation".

    It doesn't work.

    It allows extremists into Parliament.

    For a case study, look at the rise of the NSDAP to power. They began with around one seat, and by forming co-alitions and having a voice in parliament they managed to take power eventually.

    Fancy a substantial presence by extremists in Parliament (and I don't just mean the BNP), and a hung parliament every 4 years, then cry proportional representation.

    Just a pre-emptive strike before I go to bed, so I don't have to type it tomorrow.
