Despite Boris Johnson’s best efforts, we’ve never been this close to winning PR. This festive season let’s power equal votes over the line!

We're already having our democratic rights taken away by the proposed Police, Crime and Sentencing Bill, therefore, now more than ever, we really need to have proportional representation
I have supported STV since 1970, have lived under a version of it for 10 years and am sure that it produces the fairest representation possible of public opinion. This moment is the nearest we have come in my lifetime to have a serious chance of electoral reform...one mighty heave!
PR is essential in the UK. 43% of the votes cast in Dec 2019 gave the Conservatives 59% of the MPs in Parliament. A system which does this is crazy, open to corruption and totally undemocratic.
We need PR to get a truly representative Parliament & to obviate tactical voting. Even more, our present system + our unwritten 'constitution' is very vulnerable to generating a truly DANGEROUS government, with fascist tendencies, as we have at present.
