Vote ‘yes’ to AV

Here’s why I’m voting for AV:

  • It’s easy and is tried and tested. Political parties use it to elect leaders, MPs use it to elect the Speaker, Hollywood uses if for the Academy Awards.
  • Votes really count. No wasted votes or tactical voting.
  • MPs will need 50% of the vote. At the last election, two thirds of the country didn’t vote Conservative but they were elected.

It’s a shame it’s such a dry subject. Not as exciting as the royal wedding or the death of Osama Bin Laden, and plagued by playground politics.  But I hope people aren’t so turned off they don’t bother to turn out and express a preference, whether it’s for or against.
