    Why do people think that there would be no link between mp's and their constituants in a PR system? I've heard it said lots and don't get it. You'll still have constituancies, just more than one MP per constituancy. So you could even (shock, horror) choose which MP to talk to - one of your MP's have a strong record on environmental issues and you have a related problem? Talk to them. The other one strong at representing local businesses and you need some help? Talk to that one. It's really not a problem.

    And as for hung parliments being a disaster, a coalition government is pretty much the standard form of governance across europe. Yes, the Europe whosed currency is (despite Greece's problems) still outperforming the sterling.
