Another No to AV campaign video, and now it's just getting silly
To be honest this sort of bullshit where they make up all sorts of nonsense to scare people is starting to wind me up
Firstly Alan B'stard makes a comeback in a ridiculously unrealistic political scenario - fairly clearly aimed at your average man in the street who doesn't do politics, but I was struck by the fact that the result was exactly the same as what we have now - a party who tear up their manifesto and do a deal with the Lib Dems to form government and have no accountability
...in what way is that different to what we have? They just tacked on 'because of AV', when FPTP has given us exactly the same situation
Then they end with the frankly offensive statement 'one person, one vote' - one of the main beefs of reformers like me is that we do not currently have 'one person, one vote' - more than half of voters cannot win and therefore do not even have a chance of being heard, for FPTP campaigners to somehow claim it is one person and one vote is downright lying (of course it technically is, and the film deliberately obscured the lines between voting for a government and a single MP)
What they really want is 'one Tory/Labour voting person, one vote...in a safe seat'
Anyway - Yes to AV! Out of spite
