Conservatives don’t want your vote to count – Qurban Hussain

Luton South Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate Qurban Hussain has today argued that the Conservative Party’s opposition to voting reform would allow unpopular MPs to remain in their seats.

“The current voting systems means that when most people go to the polls their vote does not count. It simply is not fair or democratic that your vote only counts if you support the winning candidate – the votes of all residents should count.”

Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary Chris Huhne said:

“He’s happy for your vote not to count so that he can keep his MPs in safe seats tending to their moats and duck houses instead of the people they are supposed to represent,” said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary.

Commenting on David Cameron’s description of Proportional Representation as a ‘great con’, Chris said:

“David Cameron doesn’t want change at all. He’s just another old-style politician making a grab for absolute power with just one in three of the votes.

“He’s happy for your vote not to count so that he can keep his MPs in safe seats tending to their moats and duck houses instead of the people they are supposed to represent.”
