Like I said, but nobody listened, PR is on the agenda!
Last week I blogged on the basis of an authoritative Labour source that the Prime Minister was being lobbied to introduce Proportional Representation and an elected Lords, by senior cabinet colleagues. This was what would keep him from being "finished". The wires are now humming and lo, it has come to pass. It will be announced tomorrow for "consideration". There will have to be a referendum of course and we are now scrambling around for detail. But there you go. Now you know what it was that probably bought off the Labour rebellion.
UPDATE: It's clear the Labour proposal will be for the Alternative Vote system - this is not strictly PR. But the PR genie is out of the bottle.
