Chancellor Says Yes Campaign "Stinks"

Theoretically Hague is meant to be leading the No2AV charge for the Tories, yet he has been virtually invisible so far due to Libya et al. Instead Osborne has given the Yes campaign two barrels in not one, but two, identical interviews this morning. He told the Mail:

“The ERS, which is actually running some of the referendum ballots, and is being paid to do that by the taxpayer, stands to benefit if AV comes in… that organisation, the Electoral Reform Society – part of it is a company that makes money – is funding the Yes campaign. That stinks frankly and is exactly the sort of dodgy, behind the scenes shenanigans that people don’t like about politics.”

He told the Sun it was “dodgy” and they have a new poll that shows the more people know about AV the less they like it. When asked the referendum question 44% said No – with 37% backing Yes. But this grows to 45% and 33% once the system is explained. The bookies prices reflect this with with the latest odds for Yes at 44% (+6%) versus no 60% (-1%). It seems Yes’s attempt to become the anti-politics vote is falling flat.
