Big thanks from the Green Party

A big thank you to the 3,500 plus voters who voted for the Green Party in the recent Eastbourne Borough Council elections.

Unfortunately the first past the post system ensures that we are unrepresented.

Like most people I speak to there is a huge disappointment that electoral reform was associated with AV, a system which almost nobody wanted.

I sincerely hope that we can put that vote behind us and begin to campaign for a referendum on real proportional representation.

A democratic system should deliver one person one vote, one vote one value, which the present system clearly fails to do.
