Andrew Rawnsley spot on in his criticism of Old New Labour

Nov
Andrew Rawnsley's article in today The Observer about the reasons why we should support a change to the first past the post system was spot on.

When I was an MP (1997-2010) I always wanted to be elected by 50% +1 of the population. The only way this is possible is to bring in some kind of Alternative Vote. The nation has a chance to vote on this next May in a referendum. How sad then that the old soaks of the Labour Party happy to be branded New Labour under Blair but who could not manage their own departments when secretaries of state  - Prescott, Beckett and Blunkett - and have lived on large old Labour majorities, now want the status quo and plan to campaign for it.
