Picture this: we’re holding a referendum on electoral reform. The question on the ballot says:
‘Should the United Kingdom keep the electoral system or change the electoral system?’
More and more of those on the right say we must enact the fancy franchises plan.
Parliament says that the plan should be proportional representation, abolishing the constituency link.
Is there now really a mandate for PR? Or has this whole mess produced no mandate for anything?
But by now, it has destroyed that possibility. It has no mandate for anything & no majority.
A 2nd ref looks more *necessary* day by day.
