The AV referendum

"the campaign has thrown up some strange alliances... Meanwhile, the "yes" campaign will see Mr Miliband rub shoulders with Vince Cable, who has found himself at odds with his Conservative coalition colleagues in recent days over immigration policy."

Listening to the street, people still don't get it that the coalition entails talking to and dealing with unlikely partners. The popular press still castigates the LibDems for reneging on their manifesto while blindly ignoring that the Tories have also had to compromise their ideal winner takes all position, because they're not in a position to do so, because they weren't given carte blanche at the election.

Should the AV take the day, how long do you think it'll take to get away from the I expected XXX from my party because they had the largest number of votes? I think it'll take a generation to get used to the change away from the my turn, you're turn, we'll do it our way regardless method that first past the post has given us.

I still can't get the links to take on a title FE.

To get a Title

Click on the next icon to the right of the Globe-with-the-arrow, under 'Reply to this topic', then delete the word Heading and type in your Title.

Not that Nontek, a title for the hyperlink that should appear when you end the web address with the quotes filled with a text title. It's never done it yet for me.

That's right, it won't do that for me.

Whatever happens on May 5th, I bet that there will still be a number of people who might be struggling to understand what this is all about. Most of the arguments that I have heard are about the initial cost and perhaps future costs and possible confusion.

Will there be recounts if the various parties disagree?.

I don't know whether to mark this as resolved as it gone off on an irrelevant tangent or to ask the FE to change the title to 'Why won't my links work right?'...:)

Ah! Spuds has read my mind and guided it back on course.

If the Scots vote yes,it may force it upon England whether we want it or not.
