My constituency (Wantage) had a conservative majority of over 20,000 in the last election. It is the safest of safe seats. Once again I will go to the polls and once again my vote will be discarded and ignored, along with the votes of tens of millions of other British people who do not have the luxury of living in a marginal constituency. Electoral reform is not a matter of preference but a matter of universal suffrage.
We are on course for a massive, unchallengeable Tory majority with zero checks and balances based off less than half of the actual vote.
We already have two houses of parliament. It would be so simple to make one house (preferably the commons) follow proportional representation while keeping the parliamentary constituencies represented in the second house (preferably what is now the 'lords'). But no. Instead we have this bizarre archaic system where the lower house is grossly disproportionate to the actual vote, and an upper house that consists of a weird undemocratic mix of old nobility and newly appointed political cronies. And on the rare occasion it tries to assert itself and refuses to just rubber-stamp questionable legislation it is threatened with being dissolved becasue it has no democratic mandate. GIVE IT A DEMOCRATIC MANDATE THEN.
(edit: added some stuff about reform)
