What's the NHS got to do with fairer votes?
The NHS crisis is dominating the headlines. The government is deflecting attention by saying too many people are going to A&E.
But the public see it differently. A new poll shows overwhelming support for higher taxes to give the NHS the extra funding it needs.
But the government isn’t considering this obvious fix. It’s a huge failure of democracy, purely because a party elected on a minority of the vote has ruled out any income tax rises.
This huge gap between the government and citizens shows us why winning a fairer voting system is more important than ever. Scrapping safe seats would mean parties have to listen to the public when in power, not just at election time.
