The Scottish elections have really underlined for me why Proportional Representation is so bad.
Not only is the voting system so totally incomprehendable, but there is a fundamental disconnection between votes and candidates.
People don't vote for Parties, they vote for people. A Party dictated regional list is contemptuous of the voter. These people do not take personal responsibility for their electoral platform, they are secondary campaigners and yet, based on nothing more than a proportion of the vote, they get to sit in power and make decisions with no individual and answerable public mandate.
PR is often represented as being"fair and equal" but it is nothing of the sort. It is a collection of robots controlled by an Orwellian Party dictatorship and I will do everything possible to prevent it spreading any further.
Scotland, poor sods, are condemned to a lifetime of powerless, coalition government managing social and economic terminal decline.
