CLEGG AND THE LIB DEMS SELL OUT OVER PR
As part of the deal for getting into the coalition bed with the Tories you would think surely the Lib Dems would demand PR - a long standing demand for the Lib Dems and their previous incarnations going back to at least the 1970's.
Instead Clegg and the 22 ministers in the CON DEM Government seemed to have been more swayed by a chance to have 22 proverbial pieces of silver in respect of Ministers Jobs then stand on a long standing committment to both their voters and also members of their own party!
As the Electoral Reform society indicates - AV can be EVEN less proportional then First Past The Post (FPTP)
How long before the split in the Lib Dems takes place over this core principle?
