Update: 'Gauntlet' makes a great comment at CG's (3:07 PM):
Here's how I look at MMP - it's like patching a hole in a sinking ship with a poisonous goop.He then goes on to make some great points. This one gives me even more reason to stay on the 'No' side:
You're solving one serious problem and giving yourself another one...
The serious problem with the existing system is the massive disproportionality of the results. MMP solves that problem more or less effectively. In exchange, though, you have to get a large number of individuals in legislative roles who were put there through internal party mechanisms that are not open to public participation and are lacking in transparency.He says that's not democratic.
