Podcast: It’s Bloody Complicated: What’s all the fuss about our voting system?
After the historic vote on the Labour Conference floor for a manifesto commitment at the next general election to implement proportional representation in the House of Commons, a group of the organisations campaigning for democratic renewal came to together to publish a petition together to call on Keir Starmer to take up the torch of electoral reform.
Tens of thousands of you agreed. To start of 2023, we’re hosting some of the movers and shakers from the movement for change to our voting system.
On Tuesday 10th January we’re picking up with some of those organisations that we launched this petition with:
- Tom Brake, Director of Unlock Democracy
- Jess Garland, Director of Policy and Research
- Joe Sousek, National Coordinator of Labour for a New Democracy
- Owen Winter, Co-founder and researcher, Make Votes Matter
