To be frank, she doesn't pay a lot of attention to statistics either. She writes:
The moribund party structure now serves mainly to put down political enthusiasm. Fifty years ago one in 11 people joined parties: now it is only one in 88.Sorry, Polly, but it's far worse than that - see the stats HERE - actually only one in a hundred voters is now a member of one of the three main parties.
All that Polly's rainbow coalition of Lib Dems, Wimmin Against Coal Fired Power Stations, Socialist Dog Owners, Vegans for Wind Power and Compass Labour will produce is a great deal of heat and passion but no progress. And does she seriously imagine that Labour's ruthlessly centrist party structure is even interested in listening to voices other than the party grandees?
First Past the Post is the only system that gives us stable government; the problem we face is not that the electoral system is wrong, but that the main parties are dying in their present form, and must either radically reform or be replaced. What voters are rejecting is not FPTP but Polly's central Statism, her insulting and patronising conviction that she knows what's best for us, her hunger for rigid State control of the minutae of our lives and her bankrupt support for a corrosive and destructive system of State Welfarism.
Physician, heal thyself.
