Letter: Power to Lib Dems

Sir: What exactly is the objection of Lord Jenkins and Tony Blair to fairer and more representative voting through the single transferable vote.

Does Blair think that he will win the next election by an even bigger majority if we stick to first-past-the-post? This government seems to be saying, "We can have PR but it has to be a system that is to our advantage".

It is about time that Blair is put on the spot and is asked what specifically is his opinion on PR. Only then, can we have a proper debate. We need that debate.
