It's fifty years to the year since I parroted the conventional wisdom about British elections by First Past The Post. I could see nothing wrong with it. I didn't think it was necessary to study proportional representation. Being a student, I had to make some show of reading-up on it. The central reference library proved not devoid of copies, from other students, who had ample time to get there first. I thought I was lucky to lay hands on such a distinguished work, as Elections and Electors, by JFS Ross. I still think so. After a few years thinking the subject had nothing to do with me, I realised that so called PR was becoming an instrument of party domination, rather than the voters (proportional) representation. I have tried to play my part in serving the public interest, rather than party interests, ever since. The culmination of that effort was my invention of FAB STV, and explanation of its development in a book.
