Get rid of winner take all system

Regardless what the “spin doctors” have to say on the matter, the basic fact is that the controversial “Pensions Bill” was recently passed by all sides of the political divide because it was to their mutual benefit.

If the Service Commission responsible for the necessary adjustments are not doing their job then do something about them but do not try to sneak these vulgar increases into the statute books.

Dr Rowley’s argument that MPs will soon become full time should be enough encouragement for the Opposition and the Government to get together and come up with constitutional changes that would conform to modern day society and get rid of this “winner take all” system that encourages the “eat-ah-food” politics we are subjected to.
