Can we afford to change our voting system and what are the benefits? Well, it is likely to cost about £250m to bring in the Alternative Voting system. It is a system that no one actually wants. We conservatives are content with the voting system that has served this country very well for a very long time and the Lib Dems really want Proportional Representation not AV.
Just two weeks before the election Nick Clegg dismissed AV as a “miserable little compromise” but in the true Lib Dem way has now changed his mind. He is clearly grabbing what ever he can during his brief stint in power and will change his mind when ever it suites.
Have a look at the NO2AV advertisment.
