      Re: Yes or No

      I will be voting YES as I truly believe election results would be more representative of what people want.
      There is so much misinformation put out by the No camp.

      AND ............. the BNP want you to vote No too so go ahead ......... voting No is giving the thumbs up to the BNP is that what you REALLY want ???

      Anyone who believes the BNP really want you to vote No is being naive. What possible advantage would a No vote have for the BNP? They stand a much better chance of getting seats with a Yes vote. To say that a vote for a system supported by the two main parties is a vote for the BNP is ridiculous.

      Less than 23 million people in the whole world use the AV system and Australia, who make up the vast majority of those, look ready to go back to the FPTP system very soon.

      Re: Yes or No

      voting yes makes the whole voting system unfair because the smaller partys have a bigger chance of getten in like liberal democrats or bnp or whatever so no it dont need changing its fine the way it is. i think the goverenment should force people to vote as its unfair how some of us do vote and others cant be bothered

      Actually, I cant believe I'm about to say this, but you've made a good point there.

      If you dont fill in the Census you get fined. But it's totally acceptable not to vote (remember when you vote you can just 'spoil' the voting paper).

      In Australia they had to make it an offence not to vote, so few were voting.

      I think making voting compulsory would be a better idea than AV. But, perhaps, instead of a fine, they should make people who fail to turn out and vote repeatedly, spend a whole day watching party political broadcasts as a punishment

      It seems such an obvious thing to do really. Then you'd get to know what the whole voting population thinks!

      Re: Yes or No

      I'm sorry to say that I have witnessed the underhanded ways in which our current political system works.

      I discussed an issue with my MP who wasn't prepared to take it up because his party was against the Bill, even though I proved that the issues affected his constituents. The Bill still went through.

      I also went to watch a session where evidence was given to a Parliamentary Committee and gasped in astonishment as a so-called leader of a specific community lied through his teeth to the committee and deny that evidence relating to a matter existed and that it was worth including necessary changes in the forthcoming Act of Parliament.

      Needless to say that the community was horrified when it found out. Unfortunately the damage was already done and could not be changed.

      On another related matter, the Parliamentary Committee would not bring in some specific beneficial changes to protect a group of people better when those in the group all know it is needed. Why? Because there was no evidence to support it. Why no evidence? Because they don't collect it.

      I am sorry to say, but I have no respect for anyone who is currently working in the Houses of Parliament.
