250 million reasons why the country can't afford the Alternative Vote. Vote NO to AV!

I am supporting the "NO to AV" campaign in the referendum to be held on 5th May 2011. The video-clip below illustrates one of the many reasons why the 'Alternative Vote' is a very bad idea; it will cost a huge additional amount simply to stage this kind of election, quite apart from its inherent unfairness:

The Alternative Vote is a complicated, expensive and unfair system that gives some people more votes than others. It might sound like a small change but the danger is in the detail - it's a politicians' fix.

Governments would be selected through backroom deals and people would have no control over where their vote goes. It should be voters that decide who the best candidate is, not the voting system.

Defend one person, one vote. Vote NO to AV on 5 May.
