Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I recently read a pre-First World War book on proportional representation. One of the points the author made, discussing the effect of introducing proportional representation in Belgium, was that leading politicians who had formerly had to move to represent areas favourable to their party so as to be in Parliament; could now return and be elected from their home districts.
