AV Means Labour’s Self-Perceived Lesser Miliband Could Win

YouGov’s data is now out from the Sunday Times Labour leadership poll which forecasts Ed Miliband winning. The Labour party’s use of AV shows how perverse that electoral system can be.

  • 44% think David Miliband “would be most effective, as leader of the opposition, at holding the present government to account”, versus 21% for his brother Ed.
  • 55% think David “Is most likely to lead Labour to victory at the next General Election”, only 25% think Ed would do so.
  • 45% think David “Would make the best Prime Minister” versus 28% for Ed.

Yet YouGov calculate Ed will just shade it on second preferences. Are they mad? Labour supporters think David Miliband is twice the leader his younger brother will be, yet they are going to choose the weaker candidate on second preferences. As Forrest Gump might say – “Stupid is as stupid does”…

    AV is all very well if you like that sort of thing, for candidates from the SAME party. Not at all good for candidates of DIFFERENT parties.

    “55% think David “Is most likely to lead Labour to victory at the next General Election”, only 25% think Ed would do so.”

    So 20 percent think someone else will lead Labour to victory? Diane, perhaps? That is scary.

    Is there a figure for how many (realistic) Labour supports think their party won’t win the next election, or the one after that?

    Does it really matter who the tosspots in the Labour Party choose for their proxy ‘Dear Leader’?

    Whoever wins is going to be in hock to the Trade Union Barons and elected through a system that allows some Labour Party ‘voters’ to have as many as 7 votes through affiliation and other membership “rights”!

    And the really “stupid is as stupid does” is that a whole heap of funding of the Labour Party comes from the Trade Unions which in turn receive massive cash subsidies from the UK Government … thus you have the idiotic situation that a Conservative dominated Government is stupidly funding the Labour Party.

    That really is “stupid is as stupid does!”

    What about the lot that gave Dave and his friend. Every system has its ups and down. It might be better to go for US type of system. Even if you vote for an idiot there is senate and congress to protect.

    The biggest problem we face is the length of the parliament and number of MPs, if we elections every two years and have around 2,000 MPs (who are paid around £25,000 a year), the government will become accountable to people.

    What don’t you understand?

    1) Number acceptible candidates in order of preference.

    2) All votes are counted, losing candidate drops out, votes recounted (anyone who voted for a loser had their next preference counted instead)… repeat till one candidate left — they are the winner.

    (if during the count/recount any candidate gets >50% you can stop and declare them the winner immediately, its impossible for them to be overtaken!)

    Neil Darby says:

    If 55% vote with their first preference for D Miliband on the first round then he will win it outright. If less than 50% do so then the majority don’t want him as leader – at least as their first preference.

    AV will give Labour the candidate which is most acceptable to them – if AV is used in Westminster then it will give the outcome most acceptable to the electorate. 65% voted against Labour in 2005 yet we were lumped with Labour (and no small majority either) for 5 years – you cannot honestly tell me that makes more sense as a system?

Sammy Davis Jr didn’t change his name to Sammy Goldberg. Asian christians don’t change from Sunil Gupta to John Smith.

    About about this scenario. A majority of the voluntary party (the voters) want candidate A. the majority of unions (block votes) + PLP (weighted college vote) want candidate B Many people voting for candidate A would be happy with Candidate B as second preference. Many of the others don’t and vote for a no-hoper. Yes, I know. but I mean in the context of the election.
    The implications are quite clear, and some mathematical genius can come up with an example to demonstate that the result under AV is open to question.

    Neil,

    That’s because Labour rigged a system further that was already rigged in it’s favour.

    Boundaries have been drawn and re-drawn so that the Tories need a much greater share of the popular vote than does Labour.

    The Labour voting Scotch and Welsh are still over-represented.

    Don’t even start on the postal voting system.

    If Labour end up with a leftist “winner” who failed to secure even a quarter of the first-choice votes, then I will be very happy to see the Bliar/McRuin schism continue to propagate while Bob Crow’s lackeys keep fresh in Britons’ minds what socialists are really all about.

    O/T
    The big story this evening is the trade unions uniting in a threat of integrated and coordinated strikes to inflict maximum damage upon the public (or “threatened communities” as their terminology spin terms it).

    They are simply smarting from the defeat of their Labour Party puppet and have no agenda apart from inflicting maximum harm upon the Coalition and the wider public for their own selfish ends.

    As the private sector has taken the brunt over the past few years as the taxpayer has paid over the odds for nothing more than average services, it is now incumbant upon the Unions and the Public Sector to play fair and accept their part of any cuts that most of the rest of society has already accepted as inevitable and for the good of all (ie the UK nation).

    Should they be incapable or unwilling to accept the hand of partnership from our democratically elected Government then I believe it will be in the interests of the nation that our government ruins these unions without a second thought.

    That will be a tragedy for the working classes especially but they now have the present option of rejecting these unions who have no place and no mandate within our modern society.

    Will these unions find that they are rejected by 99% of the nation as the big society sees large numbers of voluntary workers (myself included) who will take over essential public service duties in order to protect the “threatened communities” from the ravages of these dinosaurs ???

    Kristina Davies, 20, and Ricky Winter, 23, both of Canterbury Road, Margate, Kent, had previously denied eight counts of child neglect but were found guilty following a trial at Canterbury Crown Court last month, a spokeswoman for Kent Police said.

    A paediatrician who treated the children told jurors it was the worst case he had ever encountered in 30 years of practice.
    The injuries to the boys, who were both under the age of four and cannot be named for legal reasons, included bites to their genitals.Davies and Winter also forced the children to stand in a corner with their hands on their heads for long periods of time and screamed in their faces on numerous occasions when they were looking after them in July last year.During the period the boys suffered an array of injuries including fractured bones, bruises and bites.

    jack dromey? vaz? straw? blunkett? the depierowoman? maybe sowhatka if only they could find him a constituency he could win ( perhaps he could try woolas’s seat if the court rules, at the end of this week, that woolas won by foul means and that the seat must be re-contested. Ho Hum!).

    Why not pay MPs £1 per year for every person who voted in the last election in that constitiuency ?

    That would encourage MPs to accept larger constituencies (thus far fewer MPs) and would make them encourage more folk to turn out and vote (for anyone) because their pay and pension would depend on it.

    The average constituency is about 65,000 – which would be about what they are paid now (but only if they get a 100% turnout).

    Only problem I can see would be in Bradfordistan, where the routine Postal Vote fraud would guarantee a 125% turnout every time !

    Ken is going to fight the coalition cuts, and with zero money he will increase funding for EVERYTHING, even for his old friends no doubt. Looks like Londoner’s better get used to Ken stealing more of their money, along with his London Olympics tax that the feckless who pay no tax approve of.

    Wait, Ken says that Boris increased travel fares massively. Selective memory from Livingslime who raised bus fares a massive 62% in ONE year.

    Those that think that cuts in public service budgets will mean less executive overmanning and a cull on diversity and equality officers are sadly deluded. The reality is that turkeys don’t make themselves and their pet projects redundant, but instead sack dustmen, street sweepers, road menders, school cleaners, old croakers home helps, special schools for disabled kids and all the other bottom of the pile workers.
    Just like politicians pass cuts down to the hard working average, and below average earners, your local Mayor will not be feeling the pinch.

    We have a much more transparent parliament than we have ever had in history. Thanks to Guido and those that contribute their opinions, whether, good, bad, mad or dangrous to know. Our politicians and no longer these “other” beings. They are accountable, but unlike the previous government where the Accountants turned a blind eye, or where blind. We have too many people taking the P*** out of everything that is state run. I name Lawyers (legal aid) and the construction industry (who win contracts from the underground and local councils and provide only 40% of the 100% work they invoice) as two examples. Your “bottom of the pile workers” is not a term I would use for anyone who cleans the streets or looks after special needs children, or indeed dustmen. There is no “bottom of”. We have workers or non workers. Community service is a great way to do a lot of these jobs and save the tax payer money.

    Hi I am also a Conservative voter who just will not listen to the declarations that come from Cast Iron Dave’s horse’s mouth about his political leanings (a Progressive (i.e. Marxist)), and who refuses to acknowledge that his actions speak of his EU-federalism (reneging on a promise of a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty), and who just loves it when the Conservative leadership do anything that would render me a slave (use the Global Warming scam to rob me and surrender me into the clutches of a global banking cartel).

    In no way am I a victim of years of propogandising by the political elite which have latterly been dubbed the LibLabCon by evil counter-revolutionaries.

    The BBC....WE set the agenda in British Politics says:

    Following our “triumphant and unbiased coverage” yesterday of Day 1 of the TUC Conference we shall continue that success again to-day.Viewers will also doubtless be pleased to know that we intend to follow that up with extensive and non-stop coverage on ALL News Channels and BBC One from 9am to 4pm daily of the Labour Party Conference and the event that is of paramount national importance, thel installation of the new Leader.We shall cover this with a team of 392 top-flight journalists reporting from constituencies around the country,who will give an impartial asssessment of why it is so important that Labour fight the cuts. We shall then stop all coverage of the Party Conferences on the basis that the public will be sick of these and any coverage of the Conservatives Conference would in the view of the Management be giving publicity to a political party and seeming to endorse the unacceptable policies of the Coalition.During that time viewers will have a chance to see again much-loved moments from”Cash in the Attic”:”Bargain Hunt” and “Flog it”.

    Finally we wish to make it absolutely clear to viewers and the public at large that the BBC is an IMPARTIAL observer and broadcaster and will accept no criticism from certain Tory MPs who are waging an unwarranted political vendetta against us

It also saves us from having to send staff to the wicked Tory conference where they will most probably be murdered (in between the ritual baby scarifices) and pegged out on the beach by the evil Tories to be eaten by seagulls. There will be an in depth interview about this by a number of Labour figures to support our stance in due course

    Mr Politically Incorrect says:

    So let me see if I have this right. Labour spend 13 years sucking corporate and banking cock, whilst the gap between rich and poor widens, and unions say nothing. Labour ends its 13 years with a ruined economy, high unemployment, the biggest budget deficit in history, the highest number of households on benefits, and plans for £44 billion of spending cuts. And unions stay silent. The coalition inherit this legacy and set about tackling the problems with sensible spending cuts, and the unions suddenly speak out and announce strikes to create a “winter of discontent”.

    Conclusion: the unions are a bunch of fucking evil hypocritical Hunts. This stinks of Labour dirty tricks. Time for some new legislation to curb union power. First step: ban anyone with the name Bob Crow from living on planet earth.

    If edm wins the leadership, and I hope he does, labour looks set to move sharply to the left and be dominated by the unions.

    The BBC....the voice of the Labour Movement since 1979 says:

    We continue to provide our excellent impartial view of British Politics.

    We have a team of reporters dotted around the country in pro-Labour constituencies ready at a moments notice to record a “Vox Pop” of “ordinary”(aka Labour)Voters who will with our unobstrusive off-air prompting provide reasons why the Coalition Cuts are bad for Britain.

    We also feel that the viewing public is over-gorged on politics after the pre-election run-up;Labour’s valiant efforts to stop the Tories from obtaining power(the LibDems acting to thwart our best laid plans in this objective); the Green Party Conference;the Plaid Cymru Conference;the TUC Conference followed quickly by the Labour Party Conference and the important election of the new Labour Leader that we have decided to cease all such coverage wef 30 September.It’s not our fault if the Tories can’t fit in with that timetable but we feel it the responsibility of our Charter to adequate reflect the views of viewers that we have carefully selected for their anti-Tory anti-Coalition views so that we get a balanced and unbiased view (which people will know is one of the BBC’s guiding philosophies) of the implications of alllowing the Tory cuts to proceed. We would not be living up to the ideals that made the BBC great if we did not.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
