A bit belated this post but just wanted to put on record what a great job the No2AV campaign did in ensuring the “miserable little compromise”* that is the Alternative Vote system was roundly defeated at last week’s referendum.
The final result put the Yes vote at 32.1% and the No vote at 67.9%.
This will, I hope, kick the whole question of voting reform into the long grass for a generation.
First Past the Post is simple, fair and decisive and, of all the ways to vote, we are lucky to have it as the system we use to elect our MPs and Councillors in this country.
