And the winners in the Power 2010 poll on political reform are…

The polls have closed and over 100,000 votes been counted in the Power 2010  online consultation on political reform (which we’ve previously covered here).

The most popular proposals, with people able to pick more than one from a list, were a proportional voting system, the end of ID cards and government data hoarding, an elected House of Lords, English votes on English laws and a commitment to drawing up a written constitution.

The next stage in Power 2010’s campaign will involve candidates being challenged to back this set of proposals. The campaign’s director, Pam Giddy, says, “The vote shows that voters can make difficult choices about political reform. People have chosen 5 distinct and important reforms, any or all of which would make a major difference to our political system. We’re going to keep up the pressure until election day to make sure the people who want to represent us in parliament take these results seriously and back our campaign for change.”

    I don’t see how this vote shows anything of the kind. A monkey can push a button.

    It’s a starting point. Whether it will make any difference, remains to be seen.

  • Well 4 out of 5 isn’t bad. There are plenty of think tanks that come out worse.
