Fair Votes demo London 15th May 2010

16 May

Yesterday for the first time in over twenty years I actually got up off my arse and went to a political demonstration. It was for Fair Votes and ¬†organised by the takebackparliament.com The result of the recent general election made me realise how much our entire political system in Britain is in need of serious reform. While it’s claimed that Britain is a representative democracy it’s quite clear when one takes a close look at the situation that this is not in fact the case. How can it be when a vote for a Liberal Democrat MP is worth approximately 24% of a vote for a Labour MP? I’m no political expert so don’t expect any great insights from me, but I do know unfairness when I see it.

Any way, here are a few pictures I took at the demo.
