#NoToAV – please don’t insult my intelligence
I just got the #NoToAV leaflet through my door. I’m not committed either way on this – so here’s an opportunity for them to gain a vote.
I pick up the leaflet with the back cover towards me.
They go on : “£91 Million on the referendum.”
That much ? I don’t know – but aren’t we having local elections anyway ? So it shouldn’t cost too much – the polling stations will already be up, etc etc.
Oh and it will cost us that anyway – whether or not you vote AV
“£26 Million explaining how people should vote”
Really ? I thought you just put numbers in the ballot box.
Anyway ten bob per head of population sounds pretty cheap to me.
“Up to £130 Million on electronic vote counting machines.”
Except that you don’t need them, and there are no plans to buy any.
So it’s just a load of rubbish.
There are some very powerful arguments against the AV system. None of them are contained in this leaflet.
