Petition Reform the UK Voting System - Adopt Proportional Representation
We call for a new debate & Vote into replacing the current First Past The Post system with Proportional Representation. FPTP is out-dated & only benefits the larger, more established parties. It is unfit for the modern times. PR allows for the views of the country to be more accurately representated
We ask the government not to dismiss this petition as they have done before, as whilst there was a vote in 2011, with only a 42% turnout (& was described by political scientist Iain McLean as "bad-tempered & ill-informed public debate") ; We believe opinions and the political landscape has now changed, so before you reject this, Please do additional research this year and next, such as with YouGov, & social media and if opinions have changed, as we believe, hence this petition, hold a new vote!
