As I said, forget first-past-the-post…

Thursday, 23rd June

• WITH reference to several letters on voting reform recently I refer your readers to my letter of September 9, 2016.

In it I explained how to reform the voting system, double representation, and ditch the House of Lords, all at the same time without even changing the way we vote at present merely by switching from first-past-the-post to first-and-second-past-the-post. First into the first chamber and second into the second.

I am only surprised that my elegantly simple solution has not already been adopted.

MARTIN KENNEDY, W1
