PR - Party Reinforcement

Proportional Representation is a con.

It only reinforces the grip that the major (and second division) parties have on the system. It does a brilliant job of shutting down entry to lesser beings.

How on earth would anyone standing as an independent ever get a look in?

Of course, even if you're a supporter of a particular party, it takes away any say you have in electing a named candidate, thus reducing your democratic influence.

As things stand, with party A-lists etc, the choice is very much limited for local party organisations by the central office.

Yet another way in which Big Brother is moving ever closer.
