Sir: New Labour seems to be resolutely Old Labour in its attitude to the voters of Wales. Why have they selected an electoral system which allows the voter hardly any influence over which of a party's candidates is elected? Could it be that they don't trust the voters to select suitably docile representatives?

They could instead have chosen STV, the sane and logical system used to elect Northern Ireland's MEPs. STV is Liberal Democrat party policy. What are Liberal democrats in Wales and elsewhere going to do about it?
