    Strong support for Campaign for Democracy

    Today's Independent reports that both the Tories and the Lib Dems have spoken to varying degrees in support of the power inquiry's proposals, which I mentioned earlier:

    In its report yesterday the independent commission, chaired by the Labour peer and QC Helena Kennedy, proposed 30 recommendations to re-engage people with politics. They included the abolition of the first-past-the-post voting system in line with The Independent's Campaign for Democracy, which has won the support of almost 40,000 people.

    The Green Party urged the Government to act swiftly on the Power report. Peter Cranie, the party's elections co-ordinator, said: "Tony Blair has developed a presidential-style leadership, making major, controversial decisions without public support, including going to war with Iraq and backing the insidious takeover of the NHS and state schools by private companies. This has contributed to the alienation of the electorate, particularly young people, who feel that their trip to the ballot box is ignored."
