Slash And Burn (Part 2)
If Proportional Representation is such a good idea , why didn't they have the referendum in 1997 ?
That this move is designed merely to weaken any in-coming Conservative government is emphasised by the fact that Labour would actually lose seats under such a system .
UK Polling Report currently has the Conservatives on 40% , Labour on 24% and the LibDems on 18% . Using Electoral Calculus this gives Conservative 375 , Labour 198 and LibDem 46 seats . A Conservative majority of 100 seats .
Under PR this becomes Conservative 258 , 155 Labour and 116 LibDem with 118 to others .
Labour have nothing to gain from this except to spread confusion , entrench their societal destruction , which they introduced with a non-PR mandate , and permanently weaken the power of Parliament .
Sounds about right . Just like the b*****ds !
