No serious political commentator believes that the AV vote won't happen.
Except the Labour party say they'll block it, as do the Tories - joined together they are the vast majority of the Houses of Parliament and as such the referendum will almost certainly not happen.
- The right to sack MPs - yeah right. Like that's ever going to happen.
- Reform of party funding - When the monkeys get caught with the keys to the banana plantation, going on to allow the same monkeys to write a new set of rules on plantation key management is a fools game.
- Fixed term parliaments. And this is good how? Other than to give the media a fixed to date to salivate over.
- An independent commission on banking reform - oh puleease. The banks are far to powerful to allow any real meaningful reform.
- A referendum on greater powers for the Welsh Assembly. Not my right to speak on such things.
- Restoring the earnings link to pensions. Not being an economist I'm unable to comment.
"No, I'm writing them off because they were too stupid to educate themselves before voting, and because they apparently didn't know the position of the party that they were voting for"
Nonsense. They did make themselves known. On TV. Frequently - decrying all the Tory policies.
And then they did an about face and suddenly said the opposite. This did not happen until after the election results. It may seem acceptable to you, but to a lot of people it stinks of hypocrisy and opportunism.
