Hare's book received several criticisms and objections, some of which generally took on the notion of proportional representation while others specifically articulated objections towards Hare's ideas. Several MPs have complained that Hare's plan was difficult to understand as it involved several complexities. However, some of them did not even try to understand the scheme. Most of these comments explained how the novel plan indeed veered away from the system that they were already used to, that there are no right reasons for including the representation of minorities in voting, and that the limited vote was somehow dark. Also, some pointed out that the representation by localities was completely left out from the plan.
