As the UK prepares to go to the polls to vote yea or nay to a change in the voting system, Prime Minister David Cameron has scorned those who want to change the existing first past the post of MP selection. The alternative, he says, “is so obscure that it is used by only three countries in the whole world – Australia, Fiji and Papua New Guinea”.
It added: “It is a system so unfair that the candidates that come second or third can end up winning.”
He likens it to the Olympics 100 metres with Usain Bolt breaking the tape and the gold medal going to the runner who finishes third.
And that’s why I don’t vote.
