NIGEL Farage has taken the decision to pull Brexit Party candidates in 317 Conservative-held constituencies.

Will Boris reciprocate and stand down Tory candidates in at least a few areas they are unlikely to win?

If he doesn’t, could it split the leave vote with the Brexit Party?

On the remain side of the EU debate, the Liberal Democrats, the Greens, and Plaid Cymru have established their ‘Unite to Remain’ pact in about 60 constituencies. One of those constituencies is Warrington South, where the Green Party have stood down. How effective will this pact be?

I have a dream.

Regardless of where we all stand on the Brexit debate, and regardless of where we all stand on the political spectrum, why can’t we all simply vote for what we want?

To arrive at this destination we must abandon the first past the post electoral system, and follow the example of 80 per cent of the world’s developed countries by adopting a system of proportional representation. Then the lack of choice that we are currently experiencing will very much become a thing of the past.

As for the Labour Party, it is very frustrating that they will not fully get behind electoral reform, despite the best efforts of prominent electoral reformers like Stephen Kinnock and Clive Lewis.

Surely the idea of ‘for the many, not the few’ has to begin with an equal vote for all.

On Saturday, November 30 and Sunday, December 1, there will be a Make Votes Matter (MVM) Street Stall in Warrington Town Centre.

MVM is the cross-party campaign for proportional representation.

The stall will be located outside the bus station, and will run from 12pm till 2pm on both days.

To show your support for a fairer voting system, please do pop along.
