Why should we trust people who have all been elected by the "first past the post" system to decide what the system should be? Every one of them has benefitted - at least to the extent of their parliamentary salary.
To avoid the suspicion of self-interest, MPs should all support the proposition that the system should be chosen not by them, but by the electorate.
This applies whether or not they personally want to see a change. It is a fundamental principle of democracy.Anthony Crackett, 13 years ago.
