AV – John Healey nails his colours to the mast!

Yesterdays Independent carried a short piece by John Healey on his position on the AV referendum. “John Healey MP: Vote reform would benefit only BNP, Ukip and Lib Dems.”

His well argued case is pretty difficult to disagree with, especially on the issue of who’s voters second, third? preferences get to decide who the MP is. This is important in two of Rotherham’s constituencies where Labour was well short of 50% vote share. In Rother Valley it is quite possible that if the last election had been run on the basis proposed, then they would now have a Tory MP in the shape of Lynda Donaldson! Quite a thought!
