    Seem to remember his Holiness Tony Blair saying he would think about introducing AV in 1997… right up until the point that he spun himself to a landslide election win and promptly binned the idea.

    Same reason Cameron supports FPTP, except Ed’s not as good at lying.

    Must as usual think the public have forgotten him recently on the YES campaign saying that FPTFP has kept the Tories in power for so long – even after it kept Labour in power for 14 years.
    Today I heard on PC Woman’s Hour of a Lady in the Lords trying to exist for a week on pauper money of £1 a day, and also operating a soup kitchen in Westminster but she shops at Tesco (with research at Lidl).
    These loonies have no cognizence of the real world – to paraphrase, they know the value of nothing nor the price of anything.

    Anon E Mouse says:

    In The Grauniad, Milliband the Younger’s answer was

    “We should have done.” He argued for putting a commitment to an AV referendum in the manifesto. But it didn’t happen earlier because Labour had “too big a majority”.

    As we all know both are the reasons neither Labour or the Tories want AV and even less AV+ & PR (STV).

    It doesn’t take a whole lot of cynacism to infer that the reason the ‘debate’ has turned into a slanging match is to avoid a real discussion over our representative democracy and maintain the status quo for the political cabal in the Westminster Village.

    I could hear the cat meowing as it was let out of the bag on R4.

    He’s rather gaff-prone, isn’t he?

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
