I'm not right wing, you're just all filthy lefties! :)

AV was not a very sensible option. It was a choice of stick with what we know or go to something hellishly convoluted and complex that might not change anything.

Hey! I'm not a filthy lefty. I'm just a scruffy lefty. :P

AV is hardly hellishly convoluted. Sure that's how we elect the President. Though it seems an odd way of electing people to parliament.

I was just reading about the referendum of wikipedia. There's one in the intro which made me laugh:
The campaign was described in retrospect by political scientist, Professor Iain McLean, as a "bad-tempered and ill-informed public debate".
Which seems rather harshly damning. :lol: Not that I know much about it. I can't remember if it came up in the news substantially at the time.

Yeah, that's what all the foaming right wingers say. :P

I'm more of a scruffy liberal centre rightish sort of guy. :shifty:

As for AV, the best way to kill something is to do piss poor job of implementing, promoting and explaining.

I took one of those political compass tests. It seems that the party I most line up with (if I lived in the UK) are the Greens. :shock: Maybe I should grow my hair long again, stop washing myself & embrace my inner crusty hippie persona. Project was right all along. I am a filthy lefty, I was just in denial.

Heh!

This one of my local Green party candidates.

And I was not surprised to see her at my local Skeptics in the Pub meet this week, it being about decriminalising drugs. :lol:

Greens should be used as shielding for nuclear reactors :)

It's alright, not my constituency and round here a vote for the Greens is a waste of a vote. Tory or UKIP were the only choices. :el:

I'm sure all the hemp and hessian would be very effective.

Considering how badly their leader did on that radio interview that made the rounds, I'm sure a quite high % of people think that voting Green would be a wasted vote no matter what constituency your in.

I'd be morto if I was in her position. Clips of that even made it on to normal daytime radio over here. :lol:

A green vote has always been a wasted vote unless you live in Brighton. :)

I think actually have a proper manifesto confused them, they used to just having saving the planet policies.

Congrats on the vote result. Lots of happy people everywhere.

Aye yeah, so glad it got through. I can't imagine how backwards the country would've looked if it had failed. The foreign coverage was bad enough as is. All that bollocks about "Holy Catholic Ireland". Ugh. :roll:

*pokes head in* So, hey guys, I'm back... :wink: I have a new account (of course) because for the life of me I couldn't recall any of the old information. *waves* How are all of you? It has been forever.

btw, since I've been gone Old Git and I have gotten married. So there is that.

So what have your lives been up to in the meantime?

Much Love,
Crow

A Fake AC wedding? And we weren't invited?

Seriously though, congrats to both of ye and many years of happiness. Of course we all know he came out the better off in this agreement. :P
