We Need Proportional Representation, Now

18th May 2024

People in the UK like to think we live in a democracy. But we don't. Not really.

When all elections result in just one of two parties winning, we live in a country where rigged elections are the norm, and most of us are not represented by people whose opinions we even vaguely share. It's overdue that we had proportional representation in UK elections.

Even 80% of Labour members want it. But the leaderships of the two largest parties are conspiring against us to deny us what we need. That has to stop.
