Just one vote ain't democracy

For it or against it, it is a fact that the death of the Rainbow Coalition was caused by just one vote in last night's Lib Dem Executive meeting. If just one Lib Dem Exec had voted in favour, rather than against, the Rainbow would still be a possibility.

Is this democracy - A million vote, but just one decides?

Whatever else the next Assembly does it must work out a better, fairer way of deciding which party or group rules after the 2011 election.

  1. AS long as the WAG doesn't adopt the American practice of 'gerrymandering', you're still better off than most folks in the U.S., when it comes to representational government.
