Tomorrows UK Election And Referendum

I intend to vote "Yes" tomorrow to the AV system, it's been funny to watch the conservatives freaking out, as under the new system (if we get it) they will struggle to be elected as they often get through on less than 50% of the vote. I just hope the masses aren't stupid enough to fall for their message that the AV system is hard to understand, you'd have to be pretty stupid to not understand it. They use it in the house of commons to elect their own leaders  too, so if it's so flawed and hard to understand why are they using it every day? It's the same as the X factor for gods sake, and people seem to understand that alright.

Personally though I don't think it's the voting system in this country that's the problem, I think it's the fact hardly anyone bothers to vote anymore. If everyone who didn't vote suddenly started it would really shake things up, and hopefully having a fairer voting system will encourage more people to actually register.
And yes this year I'm going to vote Green, for the big one last year I actually voted Lib Dem, and have been treated the spectacle of Nick Clegg being made David Cameron's Bitch ever since, so won't be doing that again in a hurry. There are some Green party candidates in Parliament so it is worth voting for them now, it will be very interesting to see what happens at tomorrows elections in light of the spending cuts, I wonder how many people will still be stupid enough to vote conservative....

And here's an amusing video explaining the AV system using cats, judging by the comments it seems to have confused people a bit, remeber all the cats are different parties, not just the dog.

Bring on reform cat I say! :)
