Hot off the press: the Yes to Fairer Votes broadcast - make them work for our votes #yes2av

The ink is barely dry on the Yes Campaign's first broadcast which has just been shown on BBC2.

Subtle it ain't by any stretch of the imagination. None of the politicians I know and love are like those portrayed in the broadcast, but we've seen so much evidence of MPs who take their area and their constituents for granted because, no matter what they do, or don't do, they'll get re-elected anyway under our travesty of an electoral system.

The broadcast also makes the point - but the campaign needs to keep saying this louder and louder - that parties use AV to elect their leaders because it's fairer, yet they'll deny it to ordinary voters because it would mean giving up power.
