Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The difficulty is that members of the House of Commons, on the whole, think the system that elected them is perfect. There was little support amongst them for the recent AV proposal. A minor change to the method of election, which might have led to a small number of the existing MPs losing their seats, was unacceptable. Think how ferocious the opposition would be to sortition, which would mean all the existing members losing their places.
