Episode 191 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

This week, Craig talks to Stuart Donald, an electoral reform campaigner who particularly focuses on the systematic inequalities caused by the UK’s First Past The Post electoral system. They discuss how this system disenfranchises voters, leads to them being less well represented in Parliament and leads to parties pulling in majority power rather than governing by consensus. They then discuss the solution and the prospect of proportionally representative electoral reform in the UK.
