One Reason Why YES2AV Lost.

Daniel Hannan writes:

Before the last election, a high-profile Conservative MP rang the Electoral Reform Society to offer his support. He was subjected to a cross-examination by its campaigns director, Carina Trimingham (coincidentally Huhne’s mistress) who took issue with a number of policy statements he had made in the past. Understanding that there was no place for Rightists who might support electoral reform for their own reasons, he dropped the issue. How different the Yes campaign might have been if it had made use of him, and others like him.

They should have used Nigel Farage much more to peel off UKIP and Tory voters. I only heard him in the last week (not that I thought he came over that well).
