Time to change voting system
The Conservative Party did not use First Past The Post (winner takes all) voting to choose its current party leader.
Boris Johnson had to win at least 50 per cent of the votes, over multiple ballots. A total of 64 per cent of Tory MPS voted for someone else on the first ballot.
So, why does the Government insist that
FPTP is good enough for electing MPS and (in England) councillors?
Scotland and Northern Ireland elect councillors by proportional representation and there is a local option
in Wales for electing councillors by proportional representation.
And why does the Conservative government want to change to FPTP for electing Police and Crime Commissioners and metro mayors when it’s not good enough to elect the party’s own leader?
