The vote against AV

It appears that the referendum on AV has been lost & that the lib dems have been annihilated. It was predictable that the lib dems would lose badly. Many people, including myself, feel that they let themselves down by going into coalition with the Tories. The ideals of the lib dems are so different from the Tories; in fact their policies are to the left of labour. Or at least they were prior to going into the last election. The argument at the time was that they had to go into coalition with the Tories because if there had been a lib lab coalition there wouldn’t have been a majority because there are so many independent MPs in the present Parliament. It is a huge shame about AV being turned down because the first past the post system is so unfair. But in all honesty AV isn’t a very good system. What is actually needed is PR.
