The 1918 extension of the franchise is characterised as giving the People "the vote," what it actually gave was the stub vote, a non-transferable vote. This is as impractical as commerce would be, without insurance.

Giving "the vote" to women over thirty, for the first time, elected just one woman, one enormously rich woman, because the government defaulted on its under-taking to endorse the compromise deal of the Speakers Conference on Electoral Reform, by disposing of STV to Parliament, that would lose its safe seats by it, but keeping the lost deposit, that made elections a rich mans game.

No working man or woman could enter Parliament without vetting by mass-funded trade unions. Single member constituencies also acted against women being represented, indeed against the proportional representation of all social attributes (not just parties), afforded by STV giving Proportional Representation as Personal Representation.

An unrecognised centenary worth celebrating (rather than something to be half-ashamed-of) is:

Four e-books on electoral reform & research may be down-loaded free, in epub format from Smashwords, or (3 of them) as pdf files from the pdf archive. Also available, minimally priced, from Amazon. Down-loading the Calibre program enables reading e-books in many formats.

(Four more e-books available from Smashwords in epub format.)

came out of copyright, 70 years after his death. Wells might have been dismayed to find that he is still ahead of his time, not least on electoral reform. The first part of "FAB STV:..." assesses his contribution.

I have also edited and published his main writings on "sane voting" in one
substantial book (amongst the others shown on my Smashwords page, linked at top
of this home page): *The Angels Weep: H.G. Wells on Electoral
Reform.*

A bibliography with quotes also includes minor references by Wells on proportional representation and economic representation: World peace thru democracy: HG Wells neglected third phase.

(After many years, this site has been released from its former host, and now finds a home here.)

Wikipedia has a Dorothy Cowlin biography.
