Mark – my words
Please take five minutes to send an email to your MP to canvas his or her position on May’s referendum on the Alternative Vote. You can do this very easily via the Yes to Fairer Votes website.
I have no illusions that AV would make any real difference to the outcome of elections where I live, in the solidly Conservative North East Hampshire constituency. But on a wider front, the change could make a huge difference, and might just help citizens to start trusting politicians again.
