That isn't the reason for me wanting AV but if the system has a fringe party that gains seats through minority wins worried then it proves that it is a better system. Currently every party does not have an equal chance. Refering back to that article:
Slightly OT I think the BNP is a good thing as it shows we are a democracy, I think they should win some seats as it would shock the voters into mobilising and it would show what the BNP really stand for.Quote:
The three BNP councillors elected for the first time in Burnley in 2002 had an average vote share of 28.1%. This means that 71.9% of voters voted against these councillors, yet they were still elected.
