Thought for the Day
How come the Conservatives' belief in more choice doesn't extend to voting systems?

    Because you can only have one voting system at a time?

    Actually, you can have several (at different levels of government), viz:

    FPTP (Westminster)
    AM (Holyrood, Cardiff)
    Closed List (Europe)

    But its more about offering the voters the choice of which one they'd like, rather than saying "We want the system we already have and WE KNOW BEST! And we most certainly won't let you lot choose which one you want."

"What is Liberalism?: I should say it means the acknowledgment in practical life of the truth that men are best governed who govern themselves; that the general sense of mankind, if left alone, will make for righteousness; that artificial privileges and restraints upon freedom, so far as they are not required in the interests of the community, are hurtful; and that the laws, while, of course, they cannot equalise conditions, can at least avoid aggravating inequalities, and ought to have for their object the securing to every man the best chance he can have of a good and useful life." C-B.


The Apollo Project seeks to put together new ideas on policies and campaigning to help broaden the appeal and enhance the impact of the Liberal Democrats.
