It's time to stop debating referendums and get down to the business of deciding what we want in terms of electoral reform. This focus on referendums merely allows the Conservatives and those who profit from the status quo to set the agenda.
Theirs is a strategy of distraction and disinformation and we mustn't allow that to happen. The speech below lays out the case for reform rather nicely.
Sadly his bill was defeated but Reynolds effectively makes his case nonetheless
"In the chamber, Jonathan Reynolds MP who proposed the Bill spoke on behalf of the 6,000 people who wrote to their MPs, the 500,000 who signed petitions this May and the tens of millions whose votes were wasted by First Past the Post this year at the General Election. He spoke up on behalf of the 57% of the public who think seats should match votes. And he did an excellent job. - See more at: http://www.electoral-reform.org.uk/blog/thank-you-mr-reynolds#sthash.N5QfKpWl.dpuf "
