While not wishing to make any party political statements, I would remind
people (as if it were necessary) that FF have prior form in regard to
wanting to 'adjust' the electoral system. They have TWICE sought to
replace PR by STV with the notoriously unjust First Past The Post system,
namely in 1959 and 1968.
