On AV Referendum

STV best helps all Parties get the number of MPs that their vote share indicates. AV helps all voters to make their vote count by minimising need for tactical voting. Both have preferential "1 2 3" voting. Both are better than FPTP. Choosing a better system does not mean an even better one cannot be considered later. I'll be pressing for STV but voting for AV if that's all there is on offer.
