Conservatives attack Lib Dem commitment to electoral reform

Today Tory leader David Cameron accused the Lib Dems of wanting to "hold the whole country to ransom", saying their proposed overhaul of the voting system would result in a "permanent hung Parliament" describing it as a “great con.”

In response Chris Huhne said: “David Cameron doesn’t want change at all. He’s just another old-style politician making a grab for absolute power with just one in three of the votes.

“He’s happy for your vote not to count so that he can keep his MPs in safe seats tending to their moats and duck houses instead of the people they are supposed to represent.”

Chris is our best bruiser and Cameron, the Sun et al need a black eye!

Seem to remember that Plaid voted with Labour against the introduction of STV for Council Elections, following a LCO from a Lib Dem?
