Check out the latest change.org update:
Keep on plugging for P.R., especially now when FPTP is so glaringly inadequate. https://www.change.org/p/make-this-the-last-general-election-to-use-our-broken-voting-system/u/24418118?cs_tk=Ai4axtrdkbTkAgFhtFwAAXicyyvNyQEABF8BvP2_5ihqTmA7m5nKdYvmm-w%3D&utm_campaign=37948e1aa4f4415d9bae202484f933a4&utm_medium=email&utm_source=petition_update&utm_term=cs
Three main asks:
1. Sign the petition! https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/245488
2. Share it on Facebook, Twitter and by email.
3. Think of three friends who might be interested in signing the petition. Go and have a chat with them about PR, maybe over a cup of tea. We need to get the nation talking about how we save our democracy!
Amid the current political chaos, a new petition for Proportional Representation (PR) has surged to 40,000 signatures on the official Parliament petitions site. If the petition reaches 100,000 signatures, it will be debated by MPs in Parliament. Sign it here: petition.parliament.uk/petitions/245488….
