Reading Brash's witterings and various comments on them inspired me to think up a new electoral system - you could call it "A La Carte" voting.
Basically each party gets allocated a number of seats "N" proportional to their vote.
How they allocate the seats is up to them, but it has to be a predetermined system.
For instance, party A could have a conventional ordered list and elect the top "N" people on the list.
Party B could count votes by electorate, and elect those of their candidates who "won" by the biggest margin in each electorate (or lost by the smallest margin).
Party C could list candidates by preference and let the voters decide on an STV basis.
I'm sure there are other ways I haven't thought of..
Wouldn't it be fun! NZ would always win any competition for the wierdest voting system.
