Why Labour should back STV instead of AV

Here's ex-MP Nick Palmer on why this makes sense.

By the standards that I set out in the previous post here, Nick was one of Labour's best MPs and a real loss to the PLP.

I've always been suspicious of constitutional arguments based on the idea that certain changes would marginally favour one or other party - these invariably assume (wrongly) that parties and their supporters are incapable of changing their tactics. Any party with a serious intention of winning power should be able to adapt to a reasonable variety of circumstances. The real argument to be made is how constitutional change alters the political centre of gravity in the longer term.
