Lets ‘AV’ more info

RE C.A. Ralls’ letter in the Worthing Herald of April 7.

I was delighted to see this letter. I read the Sir Peter Bottomley leaflet when it dropped though my letterbox.

My first reaction was “not scaremongering at all, are we?”.

My second was that considering we are being asked for our opinion on this alternative vote (AV), very little factual information has been provided.

I’d like to know why we aren’t being asked to comment on proportional representation, and the AV, and any other options that would make our voting system fairer.

Rather than just “yes” or “no” to AV – that seems a very narrow and biased way to ask the question.
