Brown, whose essential crookedness and lack of moral scruples have allowed this corrupt and deeply unfair anomaly to continue whilst bleating about 'fairness' will no doubt join the Labour chorus pleading for their iniquitous advantage and inequality to continue.
The UK's inequality in electoral power is beyond third-world standards; as Michael Pinto-Duschinsky told the Graham Committee in 2006
If I can just give briefly the situation in, say, Australia where the system allows up to 3.5% deviation from an electoral quota, New Zealand up to 5%, Germany up to 15%, Canada up to 25% and Singapore up to 30%. We are beyond that so we are off the radar as far as international practice is concerned. I think that causes some real problems of mal-distribution of seats in Britain.Pinto-Duschinsky also said that it was likely this situation "is against OECD standards and, dare I say, the standards of the UN Committee on Human Rights, if that is a consideration. I think that it would also probably be against the UN Declaration of 1949 which says that elections have got to be fair."
So Comrades, inequality is OK, yah? Or is there a single Labourite who will stand up for justice and fairness?
