Local councils are supposed to represent their communities. But often the make-up of council chambers fail to reflect how local people voted.
In London alone, 90% of wards with more than one councillor are represented by just one party, leaving hundreds of thousands of voters without a voice.
It’s unfair, undemocratic and completely fails to represent the views of voters. But there is a better way.
Northern Ireland has used the fairer and proportional Single Transferable Vote system for local elections for decades – and in 2007 Scotland joined them. Wales has given councils the right to choose.
It’s time for a proportional system where no one has to ‘hold their nose’ at the ballot box, and where there is healthy competition – rather than a politics of safe seats and ‘one-party states where everyone loses.
