I've been musing on the assumption that the Lib Dems would insist on Electoral Reform being a condition of joining a coalition and thinking how it would take place.

Just how would it take place? Would a form of Proportional Representation (PR) be introduced in time for a subsequent General Election, or would there be a Referendum on the matter? To my mind, putting the question to a Referendum would see PR off the agenda for decades as I can't see a scenario where an inherently change-averse population would vote in favour of something fundamentally different and outwardly more complicated. However, am I alone in finding the concept of a move to PR without a referendum somewhat distasteful?
