I hope NZ votes to keep MMP. It's one of the good things about NZ compared to UK, a fair voting system.

I don't like FFP. Quite like MMP but unsure about how the list thing works. Just on reading the Herald summaries I liked the sound of STV. Still undecided, so I'll be interested to hear what people say.

mmmm.........depends on what fair means

I prefer the idea of STV and SM personally - less power for unaccountable party machines and minor-minor parties

Brilliant.
Had a leaflet from our local green candidate and he looks like he should still be at school.

Or I'm getting old.
