'He needs body armour, not a new voting system' advert!
If I was wavering, that would have convinced me to vote for the yes option.
So it's alright
they dont need to be united behind the same candidate, but there is broad agreement that beer is preferred to coffee as left is preferred to right by the majority of this country. There is nothing confusing about this. I like it, It is alot better that all the no campaigns talk of the last candidate winning which although technically possible is so unlikely it shouldnt really be an argument
70% want a beer down the pub but have a variety of favourites around town. 30% fancy a coffee because they want to show off their macbook pros in Starbucks, in your retarded system those 7 people have to be bored out of their skulls listening to how the Apple logo lights up while a few dickheads sip on a skinny frappe. Whereas it would have been much better to realise that because most people can unite around the idea of a cold lager in the beer garden in this nice weather they should do that in one of the pubs. Everyone's happy apart from the few weird kids that wanted the coffee but in a few years when they realise that they're unpopular views aren't getting listened to anymore they can start campaigning for pr and we'll all be happy.
point is, beer wine vodka and gin might be different but they all get you drunk. coffee doesn't get you drunk. 70% of people might want to get drunk on different things, but they all want to get drunk. 30% of people want everyone to stay sober and miserable.
shame they chose a kinda trivial subject/pun combo that makes it look sillier than it is
Apart from one? Is that what they're saying here?
To make decisions that result in the best outcome for the group as whole
I don't see that; I just see a rubbish analogy. The girls in the TV version are quite fit though.
the pubs are different, people have their favourites and ones they are less keen on but when it comes down to the fundamental issue of beer vs coffee the majority are united. I guess coffee = fast cuts beer = slower cuts and more tax, the different pubs = all the party specific issues
Coffee = The Romans
The Red Lion = Peoples' Front of Judea
The Castle = the Judean People's Front
The Green Man = Judean Popular People's Front
The Queen's Head = the Popular Front of Judea
I assumed it was something an internet person knocked up.
I guess it ties in with the Filthy Cities guy's video about AV but it doesn't work the same way like this. And it looks like it was made using MS Paint. :D
I assumed the reason the No campaign had such good coverage was that it was funded by the same pockets that (mostly) fund the Tory party.
it's just the No campaign made a big thing about not being funded by tax, presumably to implicitly suggest that the Yes campaign was or something. THIS REFERENDUM IS ALREADY COSTING £90m, SO VOTE NO!!!
The money's already been mostly spent you utter belms!
I didn't think they were trying to imply Yes2AV were spending public money, however, just that they were trying to imply we could save loads of money just by voting no!
AV delivers a fairer reflection of the votes of the electorate than FPTP. If it costs a little more to be a little more democratic, I'd happily pay a small amount more in tax.
because of the £150m worth of fictional counting machines.
but I dunno it would necessarily be by a huge amount. I don't really know what the costs involved are as it is, and it's pure conjecture as to how much longer counts would take.
that counts are paid on a flat rate, not hourly
to take into account the possibility of having to go through six or seven rounds of voting in a marginal?
The funders of the No campaign were trying to suggest that they’re independent of the party system, compared to the Yes campaign.
Which is bollocks, obviously.
Prefered the parma violets/dogshit example, they should have used that.
