Make Votes Matter - it's time for reform!

  • London's Living Room, 110 The Queen's Walk, London, SE1 2AA (map)

Join us for this interactive, cross-party discussion about Proportional Representation followed by a drinks reception in London’s Living Room, with a spectacular view of the city as night falls.

While the House of Commons continues to use the First Past the Post (FPTP) voting system, delivering disproportionate UK Parliaments that don’t reflect the way people voted, the London Assembly already uses a form of Proportional Representation (PR), and better represents the diverse population of London.

Speakers at this Make Votes Matter event will include London Assembly Members from parties across the political spectrum. They will discuss their personal experience of a proportional voting system and look at how FPTP compares with PR in the UK and around the world.

  • Siân Berry AM, Green Party

  • Tom Copley AM, Labour

  • Phil McDuff, Guardian journalist

  • Caroline Pidgeon AM, Liberal Democrats

  • Sophie Walker, Leader, Women's Equality Party

  • Peter Whittle AM, UK Independence Party

The event will be chaired by Klina Jordan, Co-founder and Facilitator of Make Votes Matter, the national campaign for Proportional Representation in the House of Commons.

After hearing short presentations from the speakers the audience will have the opportunity to participate in the conversation by asking questions of the panel and sharing their own perspectives.

The event will be followed by a reception at which attendees will have the opportunity to continue the conversation over a glass of wine.
