Proportional Representation

I cannot support a move to Proportional Representation, in isolation, without a wider set of progressive changes being made at the same time.

For example, any move to a PR system would need to be considered as part of a wider constitutional convention to comprehensively weigh the reforms that our constitution needs at national, regional, and local level.  We must democratise every part of public life, in the country, community, and the economy.

I think what is more urgent is having a directly, proportionally, and fully elected upper house representing every part of the UK.

Also, we need measures designed to increase the number of young people, BAME people, private renters and people on lower incomes who actually take part in elections.
