This morning I've sent off my postal ballot and voted "Yes". This new campaign video by Yes2AV makes the case in a short and effective way on why AV just makes sense.
I have responded to comments made on my previous post that if we had AV last year we could have had a Labour Lib Dem Government with this updated quotation “the worst day of a Labour led Government is better than the best day of a Tory one”.
Remember there is a progressive majority in this country. Why else are the Tories opposed?
ps don't forget the Alternative Vote Debate at UEL Stratford, E15
"The Labour Party AV Debate is taking place on Thursday 28th April between John Denham MP for YES and Margaret Beckett MP for NO. It is being held at the University of East London Stratford Campus, Room CC101, Computer and Conference Building, The Green (off Water Lane), London E15 4LZ. Doors are open at 7pm for a 7.30 start. The venue is about 15 minutes from Stratford tube station, 5 minutes from Maryland station and can be accessed by a number of buses along Romford Road. The event is being organised by West Ham CLP and Lyn Brown MP. It is sponsored by UNISON Labour Link. All Labour Party members and affiliates are welcome".
I really do think that AV is best for the country and best for Labour. Fairer, more representative and unites progressives. I just wish Labour voters would see beyond merely giving Nick Clegg a bloody nose!
I'm a student and have just started up a Labour blog, would be great if you could have a look.
Good post and blog. Pity about the result but... there you go.
