Why Conservatives should support AV
As a Conservative Party activist, I support the Alternative Voting system (AV). This, it is safe to say, is fairly unusual.
One of the biggest problems our country faces is our broken political system. Even prior to the expenses scandal most people had lost trust in our political system, realising that the views of most people are not listened to. Many things can be changed to improve this situation such as a big devolution of power to local communities, regular Swiss style referendums and the introduction of open primaries for the incumbent party in all constituencies.
