If it doesn't reflect society then eventually people feel that they have no voice and no stake in society. We have seen the consequences of that in the UK recently. Imagine our parliament with an FPTP systemBut that doesn't answer the question of why it you think parliament should reflect society.
It won't even be radical in the Irish context.
Between this GE and the last one the change will be that SF may increase its seat count by a maximum of 19 and FG will lose a similar number.
That's not radical change in the Dail, it's just a change in the arithmetic.
