Why I am voting yes on the 5th of May
- The Alternative Vote is not perfect but it is more democratic than the system we currently use.
- It ensures that our elected representative has the approval (except under fairly unlikely circumstances) of at least 50% of the people who could be bothered to vote.
- If we don’t vote for this small improvement in out electoral system, any hope of the major change that is required will be lost for a generation.
- Voting for AV will seriously upset the Tories and John Reid – got to be a good thing.
- I don’t like kittens 😉
This is much important for our democracy than some people think. Resist the urge, those of you who support Labour to stick one to Nick Clegg, he’ll get his just desserts soon enough.
Just vote tomorrow, and vote ‘Yes’ .
