DOMINIC LAWSON: Vote CHANGE THE POWER RULES (and Starmer in No. 10) voted in favour of a Democrat reform of the United Kingdom, January 21, 2024
Do you want politics - and elections - in this country to become more European? In the forthcoming general election, you might want to vote for the Reform UK party. Richard Tice (left), the country's first-past-the-post electoral system, is the chief. 'First-past-the article is outdated,' Tice, who has a disconcerting similarity to Ken, has said. It's much more divisive. It's completely discredited. With the exception of Belarus, representation is used across Europe.'
