Letter: Let this be the last absurd `landslide'

Letter: Let this be the last absurd `landslide'

Sir: A stunning result for New Labour; a splendid one for the Lib Dems. But will this be the dawn of new electoral hope or the confirmation of electoral injustice? Here in Teignbridge, out of the 62,945 people who voted, 38,266 (60.8 per cent) of us did not get the MP we wanted. We are effectively disenfranchised.

So, a clarion call to Mr Blair and Mr Ashdown: we unseen, unheard,

forgotten, and disgruntled voters look to you for electoral reform.
