What multi-member constituencies might look like

Posted on

I felt this map, produced by Liberal Democrats for Electoral Reform, was interesting in showing what constituencies in a multi-member constituency system of proportional representation might look like:

In my opinion, slightly larger constituencies would make sense: proportionality would increase in that case. However, this compromise retains a greater link with the locality.

Would a system like this really be a problem for anyone? I can see no reason why when most people never have any contact with an MP, but PR might encourage more engagement.

I am not endorsing this proposal. I thought it was worth sharing.

Thanks for reading this post.
