The political chatter talked up supposed public support for the Lib. Dems. to gargantuan proportions, and then electoral reality kicked in. Today, if glancing over the BBC's coverage is a guide, the political chatter is talking up supposed public support for the newly hung parliament's devoting its energies to sorting out the financial black hole the psephology of voting system mechanics.
My actual position on what it means to say that one electoral system is in any sense superior to another is too nuanced to cover in this post, but my position on whether it should be a priority is clearly out of step with quite a few political enthusiasts'—although not necessarily (can anyone tell?) with the population's at large.
