It's no to AV - Alternatively so!

Alternative Vote Prize!
The country voted NO to the Alternative Voting system. No to 1-2-3 instead of X marks the spot. I was slightly annoyed to see that I was being asked whether I wanted the "first past the post" method. This is a rather derogatory expression for the Simple Majority method of election. No doubt the Electoral Commission thought they were "with it" by expressing the question so. Or maybe that helped the No campaign.

1-2-3? Maybe as confusing as 3-2-1 with Ted Rogers. The Yes Campaign get to play with Dusty Bin!
