As you may be aware, there is a referendum approaching in the UK to determine whether or not to switch from a “first past the post” voting system to an “alternative vote” (AV) voting system.
Here at the Big Bad Blog, we have previously voiced our arguments for why an AV system is preferable to the current model, and have yet to hear a convincing argument to the contrary. Indeed, we have yet to hear a single point that was not addressed in our original post.
Still, we understand why some people might still be on the fence, and would like to convince you — if you are such a person — that AV is the way to go. Rather than make further arguments for AV, however, we instead have elected to show you this actual real official video from the people behind the NO to AV campaign:
Believe it or not, this is NOT a parody. It is actually from the NO to AV people.
If the UK voting public is as stupid as the NO to AV people think it is, then they are probably right. There’s no helping us, anyway.
If, however, you disagree with this portrait of the average British voter, then you should vote for AV: we can probably handle it.
