    PR you need to discuss more than 1 voting system, i.e. not exclusively FPTP and AMS, and compare the general advantages / disadvantages.
    So what if you used both AMS and STV for PR and compare it to FPTP? I haven't done a thing on PR

    Critically examine the view that government, not individuals, should be responsible for
    health care and welfare provision.

    This essay is about collectivist and individualist approaches to health care and welfare provision.
    Your answer could describe these, look at how they affect the policies govts adopt, and then consider how successful they have been.

    Intro could state welfare state a safety net for those in need of welfare and health care - cradle to the grave. Funded through general taxation and like an insurance system, pays for help at when people need it. However, parties disagree on how the help should be organised and how much
    responsibility individuals should have.

    The individualist view (traditionally Conservatives) stresses that differences in health and wealth explained by individual lifestyle choices - health, some drink, smoke, use drugs, eat a poor diet and do little exercise. Poverty - some fail to get qualifications, some opt for state benefits rather than work for low pay. (Figures could be given to show link between poverty and poor health.)

    Individualists - criticise 'nanny state' - aim to reduce state role so that individuals take more
    responsibility – tighter controls on benefits and strict tests on those who qualify (e.g. for disability benefits). For health, emphasis on educating people through health campaigns to make better choices. Individualists more open to private health care and introducing private companies into the NHS (e.g. catering, cleaning)

    Collectivists say reality is more complex – stress many want to work but caught in poverty trap – cycle of deprivation difficult to break out of - link between poverty and ill health – poor lifestyle choices often result of situation disadvantaged are in - so merely calling for better choices not enough – govt action needed to tackle complex and inter-related causes of poverty and poor health

    Blair Labour govt accepted link between poverty and ill-health – collectivist approach based on govt reports (Acheson) – policies aimed to reduce social inclusion - use benefits to help people back to work – aim to cut poverty, raise self-esteem, improve health. Policies included New Deal, Job Centre Plus, Sure Start, Tax credits. Health policies included target setting, smoking ban, govt programmes to tackle obesity, etc..

    Labour policies brought some successes (statistics). However very expensive – massive growth in public spending on benefits and NHS. Some say major cause of recession.

    Could conclude by saying severe govt cuts now under way by coalition govt - likely to see a swing
    back to less expensive individualist policies .. could cause difficulties for many Lib Dems who tend
    to be more collectivist and some believe could threaten the coalition.
    Thanks

    Language to use:
    In particular, more importantly/noteworthy, of greater priority/significance, less importantly, without doubt, in fact.

    Contrast: however, but, on the other hand, in contrast, in contradiction, alternatively, contrary, despite.

    Argument: likewise, similarity, in agreement with, equally.

    PR in itself isn't a voting system, it simply means that the percentage of votes = percentage of seats (the result is proportional.) So by discussing AMS and STV and comparing it to FPTP, that's you answering a question about PR.
    Hopefully that makes sense!
