Vote NO to AV on 5 May

I am supporting the "NO to AV" campaign in the referendum to be held on 5th May 2011. The video-clip below is of the campaign broadcast to be transmitted this evening on BBC 1 at 6.55 p.m., ITV 1 at 6.50 p.m., Channel 5 at 7.25 p.m. or Channel 4 at 7.55 p.m. (all times are UK times - GMT+1):



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.

  2. What 'spin' is that then? If you are going to make vague and unsubstantiated comment like that here, then you may expect to be asked to expand on what you have written to justify it. You are so challenged.

    Go in Peace - and, above all, Say NO to AV!

  3. I'm going to vote "yes", on the grounds that unless I vote for the winner, then my vote counts for nothing.

    When so many parliamentary seats have large majorities, it's no wonder the British public tends to be apathetic about voting, when the vast majority of votes cast never count for anything.
