Time for electoral reform; FEEDBACK.

HAVING read various comments by correspondents to letters it may well be true that the British people were not prepared to be hoodwinked into voting for another Labour government, after what was known as New Labour.

In spite of, on the face of it, Ed Miliband having integrity, which no-one could credit Blair and his cronies with to regain the trust of the electorate.

Whenever the next election takes place I would suggest don't lose faith. After all the soul searching the Labour party will find it was let down by its policies on immigration and economic competence.

It is important in a democracy to have a vibrant opposition in politics. We have had another Tory government imposed on us. Given the votes cast in the election they don't have a mandate to govern and their devising austerity programme is not good news for the most vulnerable and marginalised in society.

It would seem to me that the word 'community' does not have any significance with many of our contemporary Tories. Surely it's time for electoral reform.
