Letter to the Oxford Times - Make votes count
Every vote should count in our voting system.  To make all votes count, we should always vote 1,2,3 instead of X.  For the House of Commons we should keep current single member constituencies (the system known as the Alternative Vote).  However local councils should be able to choose multi-member electoral areas if they wish (the system known as Proportional Representation).
I have to declare a retrospective interest. Votes in the October 1974 General Election in Newbury were roughly 24,000 Conservative, 23,000 Liberal and 9,000 Labour. With the Alternative Vote I would have been elected Liberal MP.
Yours sincerely
Dane Clouston
Former Chair, Oxfordshire Liberal Party
