Say no to MMP

It's come to my attention that, following the recent election in the UK, there are rumblings about switching from First Past The Post to MMP, like New Zealand did. Let me give you my reaction:


I would point out that we recently had a referendum to change from MMP to something else and the results were in favour of changing. Unfortunately it hasn't yet happened, but I'm hopeful.

Also, math:
The BNP got around 1.9% of the votes in the 2010 election. British parliament has 650 MPs. Under MMP, the BNP would get 12 MPs in. Good or bad? You decide!
