More or Less

More or Less is back!

This week we’ll ask if there really is no such thing as a fair voting system; and whether we can measure the voting power of the Liberal Democrats. We’ll find out why the Eurovision song contest is in fact the ultimate expression of democracy, and find out about a new website,, which is offering prizes to the best data analysts.

1.30pm BST on Radio 4 tomorrow, repeating at 8pm on Sunday – or of course, podcast and available online at the More or Less website.
