As suspected, Cameron has sold his soul for the nonsense of preserving a change to AV voting. To secure this concession to his coalition chums, it is reported that he has given the foully corrupt Labour Party their way on preserving an unfairness in our electoral system so undemocratic that the UK is 'off the scale' amongst advanced democracies according to Michael Pinto-Duschinsky.
The glacial pace of progress of the Boundary Commission under Labour was not accidental. The very last thing Labour wanted was changes to their rotten boroughs that would end the unfairness of a Labour vote in a Labour rotten borough being worth several Tory votes in a normal constituency. All their filibustering in the Lords has been in defence of this indefensible inequity, and not at all about a change to AV voting.
For Cameron now to surrender on plans to reform this corruption solely to keep the AV referendum is shabby and shameful and will do nothing to convince the people of this country that the chummy corruption of the political class has ended.
