THE DECISION with James KellyJames Kelly of ScotGoesPop guides us around the Holyrood electoral system and the controversial list vote. The Holyrood 2016 vote is a key moment for the independence movement and it is critical that a strong pro-indy majority is elected; something the system itself was designed to prevent. James looks at other parliamentary models from around the world that influenced the Holyrood system and gives a 2 minute illustration of the much misunderstood D’Hondt model that determines the overall make up of the Scottish Parliament. The list/2nd vote has been much discussed and James examines the case for this and the dangers of second guessing the unpredictable Holyrood system. James argues it's a gamble that could lead to a major set-back for independence.
