Post EU referendum thoughts

The EU referendum turnout was 72% compared with 65.1% and 66.2% in the 2010 and 2015 general elections. Every vote should count in an election like a referendum.

For the crucial exit negotiations, we need a Government that is truly representative of us. The best way to achieve this would be by an early STV/PR general election. STV Action’s Editor told 38 Degrees that when it asked its members what its post-referendum priorities should be.

Owen Winter and Make Votes Matter have launched a petition for an early PR election. Please click on http://www.makevotesmatter.org.uk/brexit-petition to see the petition and sign it.

The Electoral Reform Society has said the public engaged with the referendum (72% voted) and should continue to be engaged with constitutional issues.

These matters were all covered more fully in STV Bulletin of 24 June 2016. Please e-mail Editor@STVaction.org.uk or contact the Editor through the Contact page if you would like a copy free of charge.
