To be fair, i think most people vote based on superficial reasons. If my ward is like any other , then i dont think anyone had the faintest clue what the person they voted for was like, or what they wanted to achieve or anything. Id rather everyone voted for a party/option i didnt like but did it informed than to have voted for anything uninformed.

And AV never seemed desperately needed imo, but surely not a risk just to try it out for a decade or two. I didnt buy this whole "itll make the BNP rise to power" bullcrap. Shame the argument got so flippin messy in the end.

The thing with AV is if anything the vote would of ensured that parties like the BNP don't get a chance to get into power. They're more likely to with the current voting system.


Id happily punch you all in the face

Interestingly, Cambridge (home of the toffs) voted 'Yes' ... I wonder how that will sit with the 'rich people are tories, stuck in the past' crowd.



Cambridge has been a LibDem city for a loooong time now.



More than that it's a student city. Oxford went the same way incidentally.

I think we've pretty much lost the chance of seeing a referendum on PR anytime soon. Real shame, but then considering both the Tories and Labour were against the change, and the national papers are all aligned behind one or t'other, not a massive surprise.


Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present
