Electoral Reform Referenda 2011 & 2014
This idea of two referendums is nothing but a sham attempt to defuse discontent over the governments defiance of the electorate in the "anti-smacking" referendum. It matters scarcely a jot which electoral system is in place when the result is government by a political class who persue their own agendas without reference to public mandate and without recall. It is a diversion from the path to direct democracy and is merely window dressing. I for one have nothing but contempt for this circus sideshow.
