Now we get this poster campaign from 'No to AV'. Why? It makes no sense? The Yes to Fairer votes campaign have quickly challenged the NO side’s claims that it will cost £250 million:
- There are no plans to use electronic counting machines: this is despite the NO campaign’s key claim that such counting machines will cost £130 million
- The NO campaign have wildly exaggerated the potential cost of voter education if AV is introduced: they based the costs on the adoption of the Single Transferable Vote in Scotland, which is a more complex system than AV
This is not the exciting Anti-AV campaign promised to us back in September by NO to AV. It is also disturbing that the No campaign refuse to disclose their financial backers.
