Electorate now has a real choice

Published 04/01/2016

The media have been obsessed with the differences within the Labour Party since Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader.

This is quite unimportant: what matters is that since his election, and that of Tim Farron for the Liberal Democrats, the electorate are being given an option to vote Left, Right or Centre.

At the last general election they had three Right-wing parties to choose from. All we need now is a second chamber voted for by proportional representation and a parliament elected by the alternative vote system to give the electorate true democracy.
