Yeah no one I know other than me voted to change the voting style when we had the chance.

Something that is increasingly annoying me in politics, is when people counter arguments for pr, by saying well the country had a referendum on this subject and rejected pr.

There was no referendum on pr, it was a choice between 2 first past the post electoral systems. AV which was what was offered to the UK electorate is not a pr voting method. 

And what annoys me is that the people making this argument know that.

+1. Funny that a half-arsed attempt at PR was rejected by the public when the full option was not on offer.

Yeah I know, but it was still an improvement on this fucked up system.

I haven't had the pleasure of a Harvester I'm afraid.  Nice bit of sizeism to start the day though Dekka.

Which is more crass my comment on a obscure football message board or on the same day / eve of taking away the £20 uplift in UC, whilst food and fuel costs are going up the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions singing 'The Time of my life' in a bar at the Conservative Party conference? The latter affected £6m people.

Just how loud were they singing?

AV could've actually made the existing system LESS proportional. So, no.

Only opposition parties ever call for PR in UK. It'll never be on the table again unless we have an exceptionally weak minority government of either colour.

I voted for it as well , but not because I think it is a better , but those who were campaigning to keep first past the post, were really pissing me off.

Probably Green.

I can’t, in good conscience, bring myself to vote for any of the three main parties and there’s no way I’m voting for UKIP or any of those poorly disguised racist parties. I was a long term Labour voter but after the utter mismanagement of the party of the last decade and the piss poor opposition to the worst government in my lifetime voting for them feels like an endorsement of their bullshit.

My options are severely limited, if nothing else at least the Greens have an identity.

I disagree too much with certain policies of the Greens, though some policies I can get behind easily.

I just don't feel at all represented by any party currently. I'm not too sure a party representing me will ever do well, nothing nice and headline grabbing to get extremes either side getting excited.
