Timo has made all the arguments I would've. MacLeod, what's fair to you doesn't have to seem fair to others.

One member, one vote is unfair to larger populations - they're underrepresented. Proportional voting is unfair to smaller populations - they're underrepresented!

So both systems are unfair in some respects. What is Winston Churchill once said "Democracy is the worst form f government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time"
