Aother reason why I’m voting YES

by markjohnston on 18 April, 2011

I will vote YES because the current system is excluding so many voters from the process: vote YES not because it may give Lib Dems more seats, but because AV is a start in making the system fairer and more democratic. Those who vote NO seem to me to be doing so entirely out of self interest “I think we’ll lose seats, so regardless of whether it is fairer or not, I will think of any argument to give me more chance of power.” I believe the advent of more diversity in politics is the imperative for a fairer system. People expect to have more of a say in this on-line world and reforming the voting system is one way to start. Of course the Lib Dems may benefit, but the clue is in the name of the party and its fundamental values.
