I saw it mentioned a couple of times here and didn't know what it is. Now I do, and I'm sorry.
I read up on AV voting.

Sorry for not knowing, or sorry for us ?
In a nutshell, it seems that in the event of no majority, those that voted for "The Monster Raving Looney Party" get to decide who wins.
Regardless of the voting system, we'll still be run by corrupt idiots. But on the plus side, we're no worse than any other country, I suppose.
I think there's an equivalent in the US, also called AV, except there it stands for 'Alternative to Voting'. Under this system, the winner is decided by relatives and appointees of one candidate going through the electoral roll to purge it of anyone who sounds a bit black.
Or shooting the winner if you don't like their Pinko Liberal views - or even before they've won.
Sinnick, you are right. Oxbridge, you are a bitter old queen.
