Comment on UK Electoral Reform – Alternative Vote System by Steve Tasker.

Now for something completely different! Reduce the number of constituencies to 500 and the winner in each is the elected MP. Allocate a further 100 seats in parliament in exact proportion to the nationwide percentage of the vote, to be selected by the respective parties but ONLY from those candidates that finished second in their own ballot. Not perfect but has the following positives: a fairer balance to the overall result, less “wasted” votes, simplicity.
