Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Pretty much what I was attempting to say in 1,800 words, except (as you may have guessed) I was trying to write an op ed for a more general readership, and so had to be more moderate and measured in tone.

I didn't even get into the FPTP electoral system. The Tories and Labour pretty effectively sabotaged that one last time around, and there is little evidence the electorate have wised up since.

You're even going to lose the list system for the EP elections although, while proportional, these have less benefit in encouraging a more collaborative political culture when they don't lead to Executive formation.

The New Zealand and Irish experiences are instructive, but when did Great Britain ever learn from the colonies...
