The whole thing is a sham. Give us a referendum but only let us vote for a half-arsed version of proportional representation. Cameron is laughing at us all.
Vote No to AV (because you actually want a better system than AV) and we'll be stuck with no change.
Vote Yes to AV (because you want some kind of improvement) and we get stuck with AV, but probably never true PR.
From my understanding the sensible thing is to vote No to AV?!
"The £80 million bill for Nick Clegg's AV referendum has had to be met by councils, despite the economic crisis, it was claimed yesterday."
The £80 million bill for the referendum is being paid whatever you vote for! That's a bullshizzle anti-AV campaign. They're paying for the referendum regardless!!
Basically, it comes down to do you want to continue a system of tactical voting and wasted votes?
I'm going to vote YES! But I think it won't get voted through because:
1) there's not enough public explanation of the system for a lot of people to understand what they are actually voting for
2) the people who will actually go out and vote are more likely to be people riled up by the No campaign than people enthusiastic about AV to vote Yes
