I just saw a broadcast on saying no to AV. It's not surprising but it's still disappointing to hear the dis-ingenuousness and general all-round nonsense being spouted on this subject. Is it at all possible that AV might move us away from this kind of politics, the kind where we have to listen to lies used because the truth might damage the cause? It's difficult to see how worse government could come from AV. Wouldn't it be nice to be treated as adults, given the facts and trusted to make a rational decision? It appears that the opposition to AV fear this more than anything. I wonder why? Maybe because they care so passionately about us that they won't allow us to make our own mistakes. How generous and selfless of them.
