Making Votes Count

This is more like it:
"Nothing is more central, however, to the strength of democracy than the way votes are counted. Citizens faced, as so many are at the ballot box, with a choice between disregarding their true preference and wasting their vote, will never feel engaged with the process of government."

Also, scroll down to the comment from WoollyMindedLiberal at 9:23am 09/07/07, where it's pointed out "They are the lucky ones! Most of us live in safe seats where our vote is totally immaterial as the results for at least the next 20 years are already known."

Regular readers will know my solution.
