GAH!

The BBC now has a "Best arguments for voting Yes or No" on AV page up.

And while I'm annoyed that the No campaign are still arguing that AV means that some votes are counted more than others (clearly untrue - every round counts all votes for people whose preferences are still in the running), I am _furious_ at the awful arguments put forward by the Yes campaign.

The bit which seems to actually grab people (an end to the split vote problem, where you can have 70% of people voting for an X-wing party, and a Y-wing party gets the seat) is relegated to an aside in point 4, which 90% of people will never see.

I am incredibly frustrated by their continued incompetence at getting their message across.

Am I wrong? Do people really think that AV will make MPs work harder? Does anyone really care about that? Is there any reason whatsoever for that to be the top point?
