    I think it is kind of you that you helpfully include “cartoon” in the caption so we’re good and ready when the thing hoves into view.

    Good for once, although I miss the ‘ who is that supposed to be’ element.

    On a tedious level, if we’re to have AV I propose that all the ballot papers of those polling less than say 10%/1000 votes are binned to get rid of the Raving Loonies, etc.

    On an even more tedious level, I suggest only three or four options. Are we really expected to have a preference between say candidate 5 and 6? It will just be a guess. Maybe you are allowed to leave blank space? Come on fellow anoraks.

    This is what makes the list system in Scotland much fun. Since i did not want LyingLabour or the LiberalF’kwits in the last time i had to vote SNP/Tory/Green to keep the f’krs oot. There are quite a few bampots in the SNP ( Sandra White & Dr Bill Wilson) as well as the Greens….

    I am in favour of the single transferrable negative vote.

    Under this system you vote for the two candidates who you hate the most, and the one with the least votes against him her (or it) is the winner.

    The advantage of this system is that Labour voters will continue to vote in hordes for the Labour candidate, having completely failed to understand the new system.

    Voting against the candidate that you dislike most was the norm in the last election, it just needs to be recognised and accepted.

    Infanta of Castile says:

    I belong to several organisations which use AV to elect officers/councillors. Whenever I receive a ballot paper from the electoral reform society, I look to see if there is any candidate(s) I really dislike and rank them last. I then fill in the rest of the ballot paper randomly with the candidates I don’t know (they usually have similar pitches which are superficial and laced with new-speak so there is little to choose between them). Very occasionally there is a candidate whom I actively select as first choice. In other words, my usual strategy is to try to ensure that those I detest don’t get in.

    If the great British public votes along these lines in a GE, we could get all sorts of random results. This doesn’t tend to matter in relation to councillors for a voluntary body or professional organisation but it could be very worrying if, say, we suddenly found the Greens running the government because most voters put them down third on the list without realising that their ideology is not confined to opposing pollution.

    AV is the road to second choice government.

    Why have we got this idea that minorities are unrepresented or bad. Think of the power in minorities: Bankers, Energy suppliers, Criminals, Traveller’s. Not once have any been voted into power, yet they have more power to destroy than I have to defend against them.

    Minorities are power! So why should we have a government that is the majority second choice.

    In Scotland it runs to millions :0) It gets a bit wearing- anybody with a big gob and low intelligence can become an MSP- look at Frank McAveety, Sandra White, Mike Rumbles, Helen Eadie, the list goes on and on.

  39. 39

    If we are expected to put in a second choice and obviously for Tory voters there can never be a 2nd choice, then we must be allowed to vote for our first choice twice, or we will be denied a 2nd vote.

    We can then vote for our first choice candidate twice ensuring a landslide victory. A landslide victory that is until Labour and LibDem voters work out how to do the same, in which case we go back to FPTP.

    In fact we can save a lot of money and scrap the AV referendum now, or go ahead but instead of AV we can vote on withdrawal from the EUSSR.

    Eileen Critchley says:

    Isn’t it the truth that a change to our voting system is ultimately pointless?

    Solving the big issues that face our country is beyond any one individual or party. Who will lower life expectancy? who exactly is going to persuade the Chinese to stop hoovering up everything in their path?

    It appears that many people have come to realise that our flavor of democracy is all a bit of silly dance; its more of a tradition than a operational necessity. That’s why they don’t vote in large numbers, even after an historic scandal!

    Surely the most meaningful approach would be to devolve most things down to a new local government structure which was paid by results.

    Its absolutely clear as day that we don’t control the top end stuff like defense (Yo! Blair) and law anyway.

    Parliament needs to understand that many people genuinely don’t see its operational worth.

    If your MP took a year off what would happen to your local area?

  46. 46
    BOHICA (Bend Over, Here It Comes Again) says:

    Not quite there.

    My ballot paper would have No.1 removed. If you wanted to add another one to even-up, then why not add “Community would dance about and burn person at the stake if they stood on my doorstep.”

    I agree that Nos. 4 & 5 need to be swapped round.

    Fortunately, in our modern democracy I have never had occasion to punch a candidate in the face on my doorstep. This is because they never turn up. They are usually targeting more-important votes elsewhere.

    Its infuriating to know that myself and most of the rest of the country are electorally irrelevant. I hope that AVS and equal-sized constituencies will change all that.

    Taxfodder says:

    AV is NOT the “Real Deal”

    Proportional Representation “IS”

    AV is another Party Political stitch up to deny the UK voter a real say in who runs your affairs.

    The Un-elected coalition wants you to have your say BUT only on the agenda the un-elected coalition feels obliged to set!

    IE Do you want a kick in the nuts or a kick in the head?

    “Neither” is not an option and if you don’t say one or the other it will be taken as lack of interest and leave us no option other than to do what ever we please!

    So, fuck you!

    Did anyone see Clarkson inflict a few cuts into Alistair Campbell yesterday?

  55. 55
    Blue Lady says:

    That’s the problem with AV. If someone’s first choice comes last, the person they have chosen is eliminated and then that voter’s second choice is taken into account. In other words the AV system will give someone two votes so someone voting Limp Dems is likely to put Nuliebore as their second choice and someone voting NuLiebore is likely to put Limp Dems as their second choice whereas someone voting Tory is unlikely to put either of the other two as their second choice. This is the only reason Nuliebore are so keen because they know this on top of the boundaries being skewed, will hopefully keep the Tories out of power. We should keep FPTP but get those constituencies made equal, oh and give us an English Parliament now.

    Then they didn’t do a good job in organising the original (and sebsequent) London mayor elections.

    You pick your first choice, and then you have to pick a second choice as a “least worst” option. But the least worst option is the same as the one I just picked to win.

    So you put two crosses next to the same name, and your valid vote is now invalid because you are not playing by their rules to rigging an election, so the worst option (person 2 and below) gets in because they rigged the vote, and your vote…. well who cares about that.

    After yesterdays Youtube script pawn attack I hope Obama uses this as a reason to introduce hard hitting, freedom smashing, internet controlling regulations across the www. The www should be cut back and limited and used only to educate the global population into the ways of Hislamb.

    People must be forced to have an internet leicense and a computer leicense before they can even install a browser. All computer access must be taxed and finger print scanners must be connected to any device connected to the net. every single online action must be recorded, logged, examined and screw-tin-eyesed = scrutinised by the states. This will stop freedom loving criminals scamming, it will stop pirates of the curryedbeanstin from uploading songs and tracks and stop kids from viewing ponr. The parent of children should have an automatic fine of 10,000 for each beach there children do online. After 3 beaches the single parent MUST spend a minimum of 25 years in jail, and more beaches and it deaths throw for the parents AND children including unborn feetossus.

    Google needs kicking in the ass for its ping headedness with regards to street view or street voyeur as we call it. YoufalopiunTube needs to be unplugged and regulated into bankruptsee as it allows musics, videos and games to be splashed freeingly all over the globe without a care for the real content owners.

    I have a friend with a clever piece of software that is able to increase the number of “recommended” on CIF on’t Guardian website

    He used it most effectively in the run up to the election

    He demonstrated it to me and when it reached 700 after an hour or so the Guardian removed the item

    Phoenix Park says:

    The article states that this guy wastes between three and five minutes of emergency service operater’s’ time per call, putting other people at risk. The article also continually repeats that the operators’ aren’t allowed to cut him off in case it is a genuine emergency; but if you listen to the sample provided, at the end the operator says: “I’m going to clear the line now, ok?” … So, they can hang up on him. So, why waste nearly three minutes before doing so if he’s a known nuisance? And why all the propaganda about how they’re not allowed to cut him off when the instance provided clearly shows they are? The effing Beeb and their police state Stazi tactics can’t even organise their own propaganda machine anymore.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
