Four pages just to explain system

Have your say

Savile Park Road


I’VE just received my booklet from the Electoral Commission explaining the present voting system and the Alternative Voting system.

The present system is explained in 56 words on one page, but it takes 349 words on four pages to explain the complex, and with all the recounts needed, costly AV system.

AV almost guarantees coalition government. As we saw with the formation of the present coalition that means trading policies, rendering the promises made in the pre-election manifestos meaningless eg, student tuition fees.

With AV voters don’t know what they’re going to get, except of course, coalition government.
