A previous Greg Stephens letter to the Editor
Looks like Greg will defend anything that will keep his precious Labour Party in power. So many other letters to the editor over previous days are totally scornful of the bizzaire government we have, yet Greg thinks it represents the people.
So, people. Are you all happy with MMP? Should we have a referendum to let the people decide whether to keep MMP or not? Is Greg correct, is the system we have "reprsentative democracy"?
Personally, I think it sucks. I would much rather have a preferrential voting system, like what was tried for the council elections. That way, my vote would never be "wasted" - I could choose the direction I wanted it to take rather than let politicians decide the makeup of government.
