There's a lot of tremendous political writing emerging from the ashes of the Yes campaign. In response to Paperback Rioter, I've never liked the tendency of the Liberal Democrats under Nick Clegg to use condescending public relations language like 'fair votes' and 'fairer votes' - this kind of language feels like a defensive wall allowing the speaker to control the meaning of a brand rather than an invitation to dialogue, and moves discussion away from issues of proportionality and representation to generalities like 'fairness' and 'voting' which are less easy to address.

Tell me about it. I was out there trying to sell this stuff on the streets and "fairer votes" wasn't helping in the slightest.
