We need proportional representation

By | 2016-07-16

Here’s a letter I wrote to my MP, and suggest you do something similar. More info is available from http://www.makevotesmatter.org.uk.

Dear Mr Dowd,

Good to meet you last Wednesday. I write regarding the Ten Minute Rule bill on Proportional Representation that Caroline Lucas is bringing forward next Wednesday 20 July, and urge you to add your name in support. We must ensure that the Tories do not pull off another majority win, which remains possible given the limitations of the current electoral system. You agreed with me when I said that we need a General Election as soon as possible, and that we need the parties to work together in a kind of progressive alliance.

Please confirm that you will commit to voting for Caroline’s motion on Wednesday, as well as speaking up in favour of it to your fellow MPs and to the nation. Passing the motion would allow for a full debate of our electoral system to take place in the Commons – something that is needed now more than ever.

Kind regards,
Chris Brody

ps. Pease have a look at http://pluk.org.uk and let me know what you and your colleagues think.
