Last night the Government finally came forward with plans to have a Referendum on changing the voting system to Alternative Vote (or AV). AV is different to the current method of First Past the Post used as it allows voters to rank their preferences 1, 2, 3 and so on rather than the current method of striking only an (X) next to your first choice.
The vote was won, and we suppported the proposals because they are a step in the right direction.
Most Labour and Tory MPs don't want a fair voting system, because they know that they would be the biggest losers. Gordon Brown's Government's death-bed coversion is almost certainly a sham, and I won't be holding my breath for the introduction of fair votes any time soon.
