Excerpt: Things Can Only Get Better

“For years I had wanted to make my voice heard. And then I made one litle mark on a piece of paper and it was over for another couple of years. I still feel short-changed every time I vote. The trouble with democracy is that everyone’s vote is equal. There’s me voting Labour with a passion that nearly snapped the lead in the pencil and that counts as one vote. And then a floating voter goes ‘eeny-meeny-miny-mo’ in the polling both next to me and cancels out my choice with a random cross next to the Conservative. I thought it would be far more democratic if people’s votes took into account how strongly they felt about their support for their party. As long as that party was Labour, obviously.”
