    Why not fair? The transferable vote system is clearly a lot fairer than first past the post because the result you end up with is the majority's "least worst". But I agree with you that the process...

    I have to agree - I always thought it odd that people voted UKIP for a Parliament in which they would have no influence but didn't vote for them in General Elections, where they could have had an...

    A strange way of looking at the results. And it demonstrates that such a change cannot be answered by a simple yes/no question. The only logical way of grouping the results is 35% for No Deal; 40%...

    If those were the choices, it would have to be on a transferable vote system so that the winning option got more than 50%. Thus the Remain vote might split in the first round but would unite behind...

    I agree that any form of support for these parties is worrying and 20% plus in France is extremely concerning. But the point I was making was that Le Pen got less than last time in an atmosphere that...
