UKIP MP Douglas Carswell said:
“The case for electoral reform is strong, we can win it if we come together with a broad cross-party coalition. This will be the model for the EU referendum too, and it is great to be part of that coalition.”
UKIP Leader Nigel Farage said:
“This campaign for electoral reform is vital, now. The results of the General election where 5 million votes, the views of 5 million people are now represented by only 2 MPs; 4 million people voted for UKIP, for only 1 seat. It cannot go on like this.
