Actually, it has a lot to do with the fact that I don't trust most of those who are telling us to vote NO. Cameron and Osborne for instance, two dodgy lying shysters if ever there were. And Lady Twinkletoes herself, Ann Widdecombe, she of Strictly Come Dancing notoriety (for want of a better word). But now Lord Owen, formerly David Owen of the renegade SDP party, is giving the NO camp his support. Owen says that the recent YouGov poll, which gives the NOs a 16-point lead, indicates that pro-AV campaigners are "failing" with polling day (May 5) fast approaching. The noble lord apparently accepts the YouGov findings at face value, even though the posed questions in the survey could easily distort the findings. Here's a telling example: only 29 percent of people think AV would make MPs work harder, compared with 41 percent who think it wouldn't, and 30 percent who didn't know. The mathematical assumption MIGHT suggest a majority against but alternatively could indicate a majority for if you add the uncertain 'don't knows' to the 29 percent for. Or it could indicate overall uncertainty, making it a hung response. Often with these things it's purely a matter of interpretation, and of which people actually felt like responding when asked particular questions. Also worth noting, YouGov found it necessary last year to 'update' some of its questioning in surveys after it got a response on the Scottish SNP badly wrong. Anyway, the only REALLY relevant question to the vote for or against AV is: do we want a fairer voting system? And listening to untrustworthy siren voices isn't likely to give us one.
