12.6M people can’t be wrong…

#No2AV

So the verdict on AV is in and it’s a resounding NO.

Infact it has been such a huge victory, we might be forgiven for thinking that perhaps we worried a little too much about not enough voters coming out to defend FPTP.

In other news, the Lib Dems had a bad night, as did Labour north of the Border, whilst the Conservatives did rather better than expected nationally.

NO to AV

Peter Boland's thoughts on AV

I’ve been asked by Simon Woolley Director of OBV to write a piece on the AV debate from the perspective of the No to AV campaign.

I feel it is really important that question of whether AV is the right thing for the UK is discussed in full, so that people can decide for themselves whether they want to make such a huge transition and go out and vote for the electoral system they want on 5th May.

It’s going to busy weekend, and I will Press the Article on here when it is published.
