Who?
Anthony Tuffin

What's the talk about?

Both sides of the Brexit debate see flaws in British democracy. Anthony Tuffin will suggest a solution: Proportional Representation (PR).

The current First Past the Post system used to elect MPs is broken. Parliament does not reflect how people voted and millions of people feel locked out of the political system.

Under the PR system, every vote counts, regardless of where you live or who you vote for. Seats in Parliament match how the people vote.

Anthony Tuffin is the Chair of Make Votes Matter in West Sussex. He is the former Treasurer of the Electoral
Reform Society and has no party-political affiliation.
