AV or not to AV

AV or not to AV that is the big question for May 5th, or it could be that you are not interested in that question at all and just want to vote for your local councillor or you may not even be interested in that either, anyway it doesn't matter what you are interested in, cos, this is my Blog [only kidding, of course I AM interested in anything you want to say, so, have at it any time you want].

I have to confess that I still haven't made up my mind as to whether I am going to vote for the existing, "first past the post", or not, or for change to the, "alternate voting system" and why not I hear you ask, well it's simple really.......

Every time I open a, newspaper, turn on radio or television, or indeed browse the internet, I am finding it more and more difficult to separate the real arguments for change or not,  for all of the vitriolic fighting going on between those pro AV and those opposed.  

Sworn political enemies John Reid, Labour, is sharing a platform with David Cameron, conservative and sitting Prime Minister, arguing for no change while Nick Clegg, Lib Dem and sitting Deputy Prime Minister is, albeit hesitantly sharing with Ed Milliband, current leader of the Labour party informing us it is better to change.

But for the ordinary person out there can you get past these totally mismatched pairs and listen to any positive argument from either side, or are you being drowned by the flood of accusation of personal attacks and accusations of lies against each other.

Once again the only thing that you and I as voters can take to the polls with any degree of certainty is, That ALL politicians are only interested in promoting what they believe WILL BE BEST FOR THEM IN THE LONG TERM, and that they will lie and cheat to get it, and we the plebs, are left shaking our heads once again at the sheer arrogance of every single one of them.....
