So, the AV referendum is coming up next week (in the UK).

Now, I thought the leaflet I received from the No campaign was annoying enough. It started off well, explaining the two systems in a neutral-ish sort of way, but then someone had obviously looked at it and thought, hang on a minute, people might read all this and make up their own minds, so for the last page they'd clearly wondered, who's unpopular at the moment? I know, Nick Clegg! Well, let's lay into him for a page, then - that'll convince them.

Then today, the yes campaign leaflet. There's very little info on this - just the meaningless comment that "the only way you can make your MP work harder is by voting YES! Then they roll out that old populist chestnut, the expenses scandal.

Yep, apparently they both think that the electorate is entirely made up of thickos who only respond to meaningless soundbites.

Also, Louise Bagshawe, just because your government is currently making a hash of coalition politics, this doesn't mean that coalitions are inherently a bad thing.
