Sat here bleary eyed and a little disappointed with the election I actually feel it is now time for a change in the electoral system. It is surely not a working democracy when a party with only 36% of the vote can be put into power with such a majority. With the majority Blair has, he now has a licence to play party politics and continue to impliment his policies which may not be supported by the majority of the voting nation. I understand (although happy to be corrected), that the Labour party have, since achieving power in '97 implimented a series of boundry changes that favour them. This will make it more difficult to have a truely popular party in power. Is it not time we bought in sweeping reforms to the electoral system and moved to some form of proportional representation? I am aware of the arguments that say that PR leads to weaker governments and an inability to get things done, but there must be some "fairer" system for this country. At least if we had PR then in the current parliament, the consensus of two of the 3 major parties would be needed to pass a bill. Would this not be more democratic? At least it could then be argued that each new law would be the result of a majority decision.
