Campaigns for which is the least shit voting system enter final day


With the referendum on electoral reform taking place tomorrow, campaigners for and against AV are making their last ditch attempts to persuade voters that their system is a bit less shit than the other one.

So far it has been an ill-tempered contest with the Yes campaign accusing the No campaign of lies and scaremongering, while the No campaign have accused the Yes campaign of plotting to kill babies.

The bad feeling between the two camps even led to a confrontation in yesterday’s cabinet meeting when Energy Secretary Chris Huhne finally realised that David Cameron and George Osborne are Tories.

One witness described the incident, telling us, “Chris Huhne got angry and said ‘if I didn’t know any better I’d say you two were bloody Tories’ – to which everyone stopped and looked at each other.  It was quite awkward.”

“Chris seemed rather bemused by it all to be honest.”

AV campaigning almost over, honestly

The Yes campaign have urged voters to take what they describe as a ‘once in a lifetime opportunity’ to exchange one shit system with another shit system, but many voters are still undecided as to what they will do in tomorrow’s vote.

“I really haven’t made up my mind.” One voter told us.

“Do I go out and vote for which massively flawed voting system I dislike the least, or do I stay in and watch TV?”
