The three most piss poor arguments used against AV

May 3, 2011

1) It’s ‘un-British’

“What do you want for tea – looks like it’s a choice between burgers or fish?”

“Hmm – i’d prefer burgers”

“WHAT SORT OF SICK JONNY FOREIGNER ANSWER IS THAT?!!!”

2)  It’s ‘confusing’

So, she’s my first preference and he’s my second but, but, who – or what – is my third…oh, i just can’t get the hang of this. Who’s Ed Milliband? 

3) It will lead to the deaths of soldiers or babies or some other highly emotive group within the general population through the investment needed to change the system

Possibly the most insulting argument of them all, the logic of which would have us revert back to the divine right of kings purely because it’s less hassle and expense than this voting business.
