That said; from the government that says “you can’t leave my-your country unless you hand over your DNA, eye scan, and figure prints” this is accurately exactly the sort of “stupid thing” they would do (especially if it hadn’t already been tried out in countries like Australia).
I have to wonder that if forced voting causes the electorate as a whole to be become more dissectible to modern marketing then would it be in New Labours interests?
As far as protesting by voting for extremist parties on the grounds that they won’t actually win goes: I think the whole thing is a lot safer than you think.
Do you really think an extremist party will go from 4th minus to 1st over night?
If I lived in a constituency place like Bradford them I would take my vote a lot more seriously.
I think we should all have several votes but unlike traditional PR I don’t think we should be forced to spend them in any particular order-way. Whether or not you give all your votes to one party or to several is a choice that’s up to you. My system would make it a lot easier for smaller parties to get established.
I also believe that any MP should not only be able to propose any act of legislation but also that they should be allocated a certain amount of time for this purpose. Currently any MP can propose a law, and anyone can talk it out.
Even though i would sacrifice the local representative the reward is near 100% proportional representation, this is something both our system and other forms of PR have often failed to do.
Does this type of PR have a name or have I invented it?
If I have invented the above PR version then: All Rights Revealed
