There is a very good possibility that on May 7th Gordon Brown will be asked to form a new government as leader of the party with the largest representation in Parliament having received the 3rd largest share of the vote nationwide. A quirk of the dysfunctional electoral system currently in use in the UK where a constituency votes for a person to represent said constituency, but on securing victory he/she promptly switches representation to party. Under such circumstances, I would question New Labour's moral mandate to lead the country any longer. Throughout the three terms of government enjoyed by New Labour, they have been spouting as one of their key policies electoral and representational reform. But what have they actually achieved during this period other than diminish the influence of any body that may lay obstacles in their path? Look at the various 'reform' to the House of Lords. The reforms undertaken by New Labour are not responsible for the electoral hypocracy noted in my first paragraph, they merely demonstrate New Labour lack of genuine substance and selfish and corrupt political massaging around the fringes. However, if you could implement 'true' electoral reform, what would YOU go for? Discuss.
