Voter Turn-Off

In a recent BBC interview, Labour MP Diane Abbott who fancies herself as the new leader of the party (in fact she fancies herself full stop), referred to PR in those parts of the UK where it operates, as “an experiment”. And one that has been a failure because it has not increased voter turn-out.
What might increase voter turn-out might be a higher calibre of candidate.
You know the kind I mean.
Someone who is there on merit.
Someone that knows what they’re talking about.
Someone that knows what they’re doing.
Not the sort of detritus that we’ve had in the past.
You know the kind I mean.
Self-promoting, cheating, thieving, deluded twats who have arse-licked their way to the top and lined their pockets on the way.

I would like to point out that not all MPs fall into the above mentioned category.
Some are decidedly worse.
