Thought for the Day:Yes or No
I live in a rural part of Southern England so it almost goes without saying that the Tories would win around here even if their representative were a dead farm animal. In these penny pinching days most other parties don't field candidates and there was only the choice of voting Conservative or Liberal Democrat in our constituency. Silly me, there I was thinking that they were the same beastie these days.
So even though I don't really understand AV, and lets face it you have to be a genius to do so, I've voted Yes. It's my hope that it will provide the incentive for other parties to start fielding candidates again and give us folk a decent level of choice in the electoral process. And if the influence of the Monster Raving Loony Party is increased as a result, so be it. It might just be just the shake up that the UK political system needs!
