I have received the following email from Anthony Tuffin of STV Action:
Would you believe it? The Government has had the nerve to declare 2 – 8 July as National Democracy Week, even though it proposed in its manifesto of last year to reduce British Democracy by replacing PR and the Supplementary Vote wherever it could with FPTP. The only reason it hasn’t done that is that it doesn’t have a parliamentary majority.
Our colleagues at Make Votes Matter (MVM) aren’t going to let the Government celebrate such an undemocratic system unchallenged and need our help to make our voices heard!
