Whatever the outcome of the vote it will drive a massive wedge between the Lib Dems and the Tories.

I fail to see how a voting system that will require more than 1 count of the cast votes can be the same price, or cheaper, than one which requires only one count. :dontknow: Or is it just me?

I think this is just sabre rattling myself and another non-story. I do wonder if there is anything else in the news that could have been 'buried' beneath this story????

I agree but I think his problems is that the Tories have been economical with the true facts, out of character for politicians to do such a thing I know.

Talking of sabres I would like to see politicians on the front line with their sabres; it might make them less eager to send our Armed Forces into more catastrophes.

No matter which method is used (chicken bones) the same pile of lying, self-seekers get elected.....Who? puts them there? The voters do

Solution.....change the voters

What about demanding something different (Integrity, public service etc)......look around....others aspire to a better future

The world has been mugged recently (Banks) and no +ugger went to prison...why not? Politicians?

I'm off back to my shed

They are on their way as of 1st May. Give it a year or two and watch out for the referendum on the EU.
And watch the gerrymandered population vote "YES".

£250 a week of our money for ne'er-do-well from Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Hungary, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia and the Czech Republic, we must be mad to sit back and take this crap.

There are two srories at the back of the headline.The first obvious enough is the "Yes Vote" camp think they are losing the arguement so they are seeking to undermine the "No Vote" arguement.The second is Mr Huhne fancies being LibDem leader and thinks if he speaks out saying things that he reckons Clegg should be saying it will strengthen his candidacy in any future leadership tussle.

In the not too distant future I doubt if there will be a Lib Dem party to tussle over, seeing how they betrayed those who voted for them.

I read somewhere that one of the major backers of the YES campaign is the company that is lined up to supply the kit that will be used for counting the votes...
