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 […]

Not long until May 5th!

by markjohnston on 15 April, 2011

We’ll have new councils on 5th May. We must elect competent local people who, even if members of political parties, have minds of their own and strive for the common good.
