BY Nancy Scola | Friday, May 7 2010
From the ashes of one election, an intriguing campaign, worth keeping an eye on, emerges: TakeBackParliament.com. "Our 'winner takes all' system of First-Past-The-Post is bust beyond repair," reads its manifesto. (Link added) "It produces unfair and undemocratic results, like the one we've just seen, which don't reflect the wishes of the British people." The purple-themed campaign is a product of a coalition which includes POWER2010, Unlock Democracy, Electoral Reform Society and Vote for a Change. They're organizing through Facebook, Twitter, email, and more to hold a rally in Trafalgar Square this Saturday.
