The head of Britain’s election watchdog has backed a review of the voting system and accepts that switching to proportional representation could offer a “better reflection” of the public’s political views, according to Marie Wolff. There have been calls for PR-STV to be introduced here for Westminster elections (we already use it for council, European and Assembly elections). If the Government is considering it for the UK as a whole, might it see NI as a guinea-pig in waiting..?
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
