Yes, I know the site costs money to run and I haven't offered any of my own. Yes, I know people are free to make a choice. Yes, I know some Labour politicans to their eternal shame are in that camp too. Yes, I know I'm a crabby blinkered old lefty. And yes, I know this is a satirical news website and therefore ready to extract the urine out of anyone and everyone.
You're waiting for the 'but', right? Well here it is.
BUT, the 'No to AV' campaign is 90%+ about Tories cynically defending the system that they know benefits them most. It's funded mainly by those who fund the Tories at the general election - which is why they have a much bigger advertising budget than the 'Yes' campaign. The people handing out leaflets in the streets are the same nice old Tory ladies you see coming out of the woodwork at election time. And, surprise surprise, we're getting the usual scare campaign from the right-wing tabloids, which is apparently working.
I'll spare you the arguments for and against AV, it's being done on another thread. But seeing this ad on NewsBiscuit really does leave a nasty taste in my mouth.
