AV will improve voting system

Published 29/04/2011

I HAVE to disagree with some of your correspondent Harry Stephenson's comments on AV (Write Back, April 27).

If there's a problem, I believe it should be engaged with and improved upon.

We can't fix all the world's problems, but we can't give up trying to improve things.

Making my representative more responsive to my needs, making him or her earn more than 50% of the vote to secure their place at Westminster will be a great improvement.

The days of first past the post, and unrepresentative government, are hopefully numbered.
