Blogged Elsewhere: Why Northern Ireland should say Yes to the Alternative Vote

Over on Slugger O'Toole I've posted the following earlier to day.

Is it right that only three of Northern Ireland’s 18 MPs had the backing of over 50% of those who voted last May? Or right that another three had only one in three people vote for them? That is the situation that Northern Ireland found itself in last May after the only election that we place an X on our ballots rather than ranking our candidates by order of preference.

You can read the rest here it even contains my word of the week 'promiscuous'.
