dishy historian explains why #yes2av is the simple solution to finding the candidate the majority is happy with

3 May

There are many videos about the Referendum on Thursday – this is one of my favourite at the moment, particularly given who the presenter is….

I’m proud to live in a country where we are free to make our own choices; but under the current system, that freedom of choice doesn’t extend to the voting booth.

Under FPTP, two-thirds of our MPs that are sent to Westminster, even though the majority of their constituents voted against them.

The referendum on Thursday is our chance to change all that – the winner under AV is the candidate that the majority are happy with. What could be fairer?
