Tories Need Electoral Reform Too

leave a comment »

I would have thought it was obvious after the unsatisfactory result of this election that Tories need electoral reform too.  It should definitely not be a dealbreaker between the Tories and Lib Dems.  In fact, I’ll go further, David Cameron should offer a referendum on the issue – why not?

A redrawing of constituency boundaries so that each seat has the same number of voters would in itself be a more proportional form of representation.  I also think that a fixed term of office would lead to fairer and more sensible government.

David Cameron has an opportunity now to become prime minister and usher in a new, fairer, brighter politics.   If he misses this chance then he will have let down the British people as well as the Tory party and himself.  Brown, at last, thank God, is gone.  At least we can be grateful for that and, yes, eventually, he did find some dignity in his defeat.
