In today's Guardian, Martin Kettle presents the strongest set of arguments I've yet heard for voting yes in the AV referendum on 6th May. In the increasingly obsequious behaviour of David Cameron and his cronies, we are beginning to see the true colours of the modern Conservative Party - colours their PR machine has done well to tone down thus far - come shining through; and it's a particularly nasty shade of blue.
As Kettle concludes,
if you want to harm the coalition, vote yes to AV.
If you want to bring the quickest possible end to this dreadful government; one which understands nothing of economics and cares even less about the most vulnerable in society, a vote for a change in the voting system, however modest that reform may be, and however imperfect the alternative on offer, then vote 'yes' to AV.
And, if you're still not sure how it works, what difference it will make or why it's just a little bit fairer, watch this excellent video:
