Should we switch to proportional representation?

In last week’s election the split of votes was

Tory 36%, Labour 29%, Lib Dems 23%

yet the share of seats won (excluding others)

Tory 49%, Labour 42%, Lib Dem 9%

Proportional representation would mean the seats won are in proportion to the vote share – yet the argument against is it would likely lead us to permanent hung parliaments.

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
