Comment on UK Electoral Reform – Alternative Vote System by JimBo.

Amazing, & Brilliant!

I have had this idea in my head for some time, I am glad to see that someone else has articulated it.

This takes care of both reform problems in one fell swoop:

1. It reflects true proportionality in votes cast (as opposed to the pseudo-PR systems currently being discussed) whilst still allowing for decisive governments to continue being formed from the Commons.

2. It completes Lords reform elegantly (although a small number of seats could still be appointed for the sake of tradition, or concentrating expertise, or to execute some of the un-separated powers that might still reside in the Lords).

Go Marc!
