The Midweek Collection - AN AV REFERENDUM SPECIAL
5 things I’ve discovered written about the AV Referendum that have brightened my week. As always, they’re here because they are interesting, not because I agree with every word…
1. ‘Many Conservatives will be demented with rage if they are defeated in the referendum on electoral reform’ writes Andrew Rawnsley in the Guardian.
Surely that headline alone makes you want to read it…
2. ‘Never has a duller issue caused so many to sound insane with rage’ writes Jackie Ashley
Ms. Ashley stirs the Tory pot….
3. 'A very odd political campaign’ by Bagehot in The Economist.
Bagehot takes a very dim view of both sides campaigning.
4. 'The AV Referendum discredits Referendums’ writes Alex Massie in The Spectator.
Makes Bagehot sound almost positive. Also, surely referenda? I stand to be corrected…
5. 'Digging for Victory'
Help needed for the YES campaign. Go on, you know you want to.
