STV Goes Down To Defeat

*And so with gods and men the sheep remain inside their pen
though many times they've seen the way to leave.

As it's said: It's hard to fly with eagles when you're surrounded by a bunch of turkeys, or something to that affect.
Disappionting, but not surprising.

STV with its ranking system is just a way to dilute the votes of people who want smaller or less popular political parties. It's a farce designed to reward the most partisan faction - which in BC is the centre-right. Get over it.

Mixed member proportional is a proven system that:
- provides local representation, and
- averages out with the popular vote.

I like the "one person/one vote" aspect of MMP, too.
