Silly voting systems?

Alan Johnson received far more first, second, third and fourth-preference votes than Harriet Harman.

Harriet Harman is still Labour Deputy Leader.

Fourth round:
Jon Cruddas 30.06%
Harriet Harman 33.58%
Alan Johnson 36.35%

Fifth round:
Harriet Harman 50.43%
Alan Johnson 49.56%

So Jon Cruddas’ votes went to Harman then.

    Thats how the voting system works though, that is the most democratic means of election, otherwise we may as well just call it for Cruddas on a first past the post system.

    All voting systems are silly. From the little I’ve read, this sounds like it was STV, and so it’s a fairer result than FPTP.

    Shit, I should’ve put a bet on.
