I’ve signed a petition for a fairer voting system in local elections in England and Wales

Posted on

Last week’s local elections delivered huge majorities on many councils to parties which won less than half the votes. On Devon County Council last year, the Tories won 70 per cent of the seats for only 44 per cent of the votes: they feel they have a right to rule but really they only represent a minority. The Electoral Reform Society has a petition to change this, and I was pleased to sign.

    The link to the petition doesn’t work, although I think I may have already signed it.
