PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION... NOV 27TH,2013


Proportional Representation… NOV 27TH,2013
By
James Bredin

Why is it so difficult to bring about democratic change?
To impress on those at the top that we are not a little strange,
Soft criminal justice, injection sites and needle exchange places,
It's called political correctness gone wild right in our faces.


Some politicians get there with a small proportion of the vote,
Due to our first-past-the-post system and what that will promote?
When three or more candidates run, the votes are spread all around,
The combined loosers get more votes than the winner so cool clown.


Binding referendums would give us true representation,
They have it in Switzerland and it would end our frustration,
Of pompous politicians who shouldn't even be there,
Who brought us political correctness and now it's our affair.

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
