Voting reform is "missing link" in Brown's reforms - Guardian

The Guardian's leader this morning delivers strong advice to Gordon Brown on voting reform:

A more thorough-going reform, such as that proposed by Lord Jenkins, is needed to make fair votes a reality. That would have meant fewer Labour seats last time round, so Mr Brown will no doubt hesitate about including it in the next manifesto. But if he is serious about restoring political engagement, there is no alternative. Votes will always remain the most important link between the government and the governed. Making them fairer is the missing link in Mr Brown's plans to re-engage the two.
