Alternative vote referendum

Today there is a UK wide referendum on our electoral system - should we change from First Past the Post to the Alternative Vote system.

I will be voting yes because although AV isn't perfect it's better than our rotten system.  It will decrease the chances of governments winning with huge majorities, it will give us a more representative parliament and it might go some way to changing the 2 party system that we've got now.

I feel I should say far more about this important referendum, but I don't have it in me.  Maybe I'll have more to say once I know the outcome.  Anyway, I hope you all vote yes.

I voted "Yes" tonight! The deciding factor: a big headline on the bloody Daily Mail, telling me to vote "No"...
