Letter: PR would stop corruption

HOW curious that Anne McElvoy should praise first-past-the-post for ridding us of the Conservative government when it was that same system which gave the Tories 18 years of untrammelled power in the first place.

Nor should Labour's huge majority in the Commons blind anyone to the fact that, as usual, we have a party in office which almost 60 per cent of the voters explicitly rejected. That is not praiseworthy, it is plain barmy.
