Say YES to a (slightly) fairer voting system

AV isn’t the best proportional representation voting system, and it’s only going to apply to the House of Commons for voting MPs in – don’t forget the upper house where the Lords sit with their power of veto over bills passed through the Commons is completely unelected (what a democracy we have to trumpet about to the ‘undemocratic’ parts of the world!). It sadly won’t change local elections either where some reform is desperately needed. But it’s a start – so please for all our sakes – VOTE YES on May 5th. I will be.
