This is where a Majority gets us. No respect at all for the views/wants of the minority. Why are people so terrified of minority Governments? Without proportional representation a majority government can be a minority of the population. 60% of the pop. did not vote for the Conservatives yet...

First past the post is kind of nuts. It's a bit depressing that in Ontario we had the chance to introduce some kind of proportional system not too long ago and it failed.

Here's a great clip of John Cleese explaining the benefits of the Mixed Member Proportional system in 1987: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bDIxI8HV8g
