    What we need is, to the extent possible,

    A) for every voter to be represented by a member of parliament who shares his or her values, and,
    B) each member of parliament to represent the same number of voters.

    In this way we would get a House of Commons that is what the people want and vote for. It can be accomplished using multi-member electoral districts, preferential ballots, and a counting system that best accomplishes the objective.

    Note that the objective is NOT ‘proportional representation’ per se, but that each voter will have a representative of his or her values. The House of Commons would then be proportional in terms of values, but not necessarily proportional in terms of political parties.

    This would give us a ‘consensus’ democracy, in the sense of the term used by Arend Lijphart.
