Opinions about AV

When you go to the polling booths in May or vote via the apparently, very popular, postal voting system you will be asked “Do you want the UK to adopt the “alternative vote” system instead of the current “first past the post” system for electing MPs to the House of Commons?’

This vote that will cost the country tens of millions of pounds, was another of the tranche of muddling issues agreed in the ‘Coalition Agreement’ by the LibDem rebels, Laws, Clegg and Alexander et-al.

Here are some of the views about AV

A youthful 57-year-old Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill warned the House of Commons in 1931 that the Alternative Vote was “the stupidest, the least scientific, the most unreal” system of voting” Then again he also believed in his Chief Science advisor’s view that WW2 radar was a waste of time until on the Eve of the Battle of Britain, better minds like Henry Tizzard persuaded him otherwise.
