    MPs in obeying whip shocker :rolleyes:
    But it just shows how much the Liberal Democrats don't care about anything - they would rather follow the whip than vote for proportional representation...

    The idea that the Liberal Democrats whipped against PR is bad enough.

    You do realise that a lot more countries use forms of PR than FPTP...
    FPTP is the most widely used system :cool:

    What did I say was stupid? That the Liberal Democrats voted against PR? That's not stupid thats fact. That many Liberal Democrat backbenchers voted against PR? That's not stupid thats fact.

    I find it quite interesting that the Lib Dem backbenchers voted against PR given what their party stands for - Tories often ignore the whip, why can't Lib Dems?

    Oh sorry obviously I am being stupid so I will end on **** you very much.

    It is the most widely used individual system, but you may be right in saying PR is more used. :cool:

    Lib Dems raped on almost every front, AV roundly defeated, and electoral reform off the cards for further generations. What a fantastic day to be a Lib Dem.
