Fascinating Figures on AV

Professor John Curtice has done an analyisis here of recent UK General Elections to see what the result might have been if we had had the Alternative Vote System, the system on which Parliament has just voted to have a referendum....after the 2010 election.

It seems, given that Prof Curtice's assumptions and calculations are correct, that the the Lib Dems would have been the big winners.

The Tories would have been the losers over the last three elections, 1997, 2001 and 2005.

It's interesting that the Lib Dems are keen on the AV system, and it's not at all cynical to conclude that they love AV because they could anticipate greater numbers of MPs........

..not at all cynical....
