  1. Actually, it’s just another bunch of partisan nonsense. You could do the same the other way around. Fact is, people seem to have an intrinsic “feel” for whether they prefer a person who gets what you’d call a “widest preference” or if they’d prefer a person who gets the most votes to be the winner. All the rest is just the two sides sabre rattling at each other.

    Personally, I prefer the person who wins to win. It seems pretty simple to me. But I suspect that the “wide preference” idea seems pretty simple to others. You believe what you believe. Vote for it and we’ll see what happens. Yay democracy!

    1. Yes!

      I initially put this post up with the following intention:

      “To ensure that people realise that promotional/persuasive material is never going to provide a fair, balanced view of anything”

      I think it’s telling that 90% of people I have spoken to have based their decision solely upon these materials/things they’ve read on the Internet, provided by combatants on either side of the line.

      Personally I am unsure as to what system is most ‘beneficial’ to Britain as a whole, but after the last election left me embittered I feel the knee-jerk reaction to lean towards the AV. Five years ago I would probably opposed it, but that’s the very nature of political thinking I guess.

      My ultimate hope is that this referendum, coupled with the discussions online and in the media – and in the pub, naturally – will raise the interest levels of potential voters who until now were not inclined to participate.

      More people voting is a win for either side of the discussion in my book.
