It is what is.  There are no certainties in politics or electoral reform,
other than that someone will game the system and someone will find
something that can be construed as a flaw in any system.

And we see this already emerging in the US,
I think in the next four years, there'll be a different center-right and
maybe center-left major parties in the US, due to the exacerbation of the
major fault line in the GOP in this coming year.  It will be much better,
especially if we push hard for the strategic use of PR and replacement of
FPTP thru the paths of least resistance.
