More on that referendum
I shall try not to write too much about the referendum campaign that has just gone but this is an interesting summary from someone who supported AV on why the YES campaign was so terribly bad. As it happens I don't agree that Nigel Farage's presence is necessarily a vote winner though he does energize activists. Nevertheless, it would have been sensible to have him on board simply to show that the campaign cut across all parties and political opinions and was not simply a nice little trendy attempt to tell us all how we should vote. This sort of thing, for instance, is laughable and infuriating in about equal measure.
