In 2011, a referendum was held on whether to change Britain’s voting system, which was rejected. However, campaigners point out that the system on offer was not Proportional Representation.
“The AV referendum in 2011 was probably lost because it was a choice between the status quo and the only option almost nobody wanted. First Past The Post (FPTP) suits a two-party system but our politics has moved on. If we are to have a House of Commons which better reflects the views of the people of this country, it needs a different voting system.
