  • ...those bizarre arguments tend to be made by professional politicians who really don’t like the increased choice that AV gives to voters. Every argument they make against AV seems to have at its heart the point that “You the voter should not be allowed think or do that”. Voters, on the other hand, voting under an AV system, think “I really like her, he’s okay, and I can’t stand that other guy with the beard”.  The professional politicians on the No side just hate that voters should be given permission by AV to even think like that.

Of course quite a lot of British people have already used AV, they just might not remember that they did. Student Union elections around the country have been run with AV (or STV, depending on the institution) for at least a decade and a half, probably a lot longer.

Yes, student elections in Cambridge were STV in the 80s.
