Which way to the 'reality correction' facility ?   Somewhere in the EU,  I suppose ?

You are simply wrong. The blatant spreading of disinformation and argumenting based on confirmation bias in this thread illustrates points made about people's inability to assess reality correctly.

wtf ?

Don't knock it........it works!

Any country with proportional representation ends up with deadlock or continual elections to try and form a government.

Common examples are Italy and Israel.

How much has your government managed to do in the last 3 years?  Apart from the Russia investigation and Impeachment enquiries?

Proportional representation works very well here in Germany, as it does in many other countries.

You are simply wrong. The blatant spreading of disinformation and argumenting based on confirmation bias in this thread illustrates points made about people's inability to assess reality correctly.

Here's a list of countries and electrions captioned "Countries with PR do not appear to have more elections":

One of the trickiest parts will be concocting the mechanical portion.  IE, mounting system (those are pretty long modules) and the mating motherboard beneath the modules.

However, I do agree about the age split. People over 65 ar clearly much wiser than the young voters so they should each be given 10 votes to make representation truly proportional.

That sounds ageist....  ::)

The good news is that kids are too stoned to get off the couch and vote.... old people vote.  8)

Hey all! I’ve got a 40 channel SSL E in my studio, because of this I have a bunch of spare channels, now I’m wondering I can make a small8 channel side car. Maybe find a center section or reverb or something. Anyone ever do something like this? What would be involved?

It's also interesting to see another place where 'winner take all' converts a 43% vote margin into a 54% representation victory, with 'left' parties like Labour, Greens, SNP and LibDems taking 16.1M votes versus a combined total for Conservatives, UKIP, Brexit and DUP of 14.9M votes.  That's effectively a 4% vote share disadvantage turning into a 110 seat (or 17%) lead.  The age split is even more remarkable, with Tories having an 80% vote share of the over-65 crowd (however full age-splits are still being tabulated as of this writing).

Hopefully someone someday will figure out that land shouldn't get a vote, especially for elections deciding national representation.

II is nothing to do with a winner takes all. It is plain simple democracy in a multi party system which many people fail to grasp. The decision taken is the one the most people voted for. The decision most people voted for was a Tory government. It really is that simple.

However, I do agree about the age split. People over 65 ar clearly much wiser than the young voters so they should each be given 10 votes to make representation truly proportional.

Just because Borris had to pubicly climb down over selling NHS data directly to the US doesnt mean much .
This is simply not rue. The document Corbyn referred to had been available in the public domain for some time in an unredacted form. There was nothing new in it, There was no mention of selling the NHS. There was nothing to deny or retract or climb down from

Yet Corbyn he held up an old copy of the redacted version, claimed he now had the unredacted version in which it said the NHS was for sale. Plain, simple lies.

More false news.

Cheers
