Interesting bservation regarding current political events (UK) Answered


A referendum on 5 May 2011 will ask UK voters whether they want to change how MPs are elected in General Elections.

Instead of just voting for one candidate voters could rank candidates in order of preference, and these preferences could be used to decide the outcome in places where no candidate wins more than 50% of votes cast.


(BBC Explanation of AV)

Interesting to note...

The UK has three main political parties.

Two of them are campaigning against AV, claiming, amongst other things, that AV would make no real difference to election results.

However...

Both parties use AV-style processes to elect their leaders.

And...

If both parties had used first-past-the-post, both parties would have different leaders to those they now have.




Nine letters, begins with an "h"....

I don't think you need to examine it that closely but it is worth noting as useful when you get older.

No, we had to dig a tick out of Conker - it dug into his chest when after a walk in the fells.

You wrote: I just don't have a working O on my keyboard.....

So I suggested a zero rather then an O  :-)

I missed the "O" off "Observation", and gave a silly answer to Jamalam (using an "O" to tell him I had no "O").

Ok, so why not just use a zero 0 since it is almost the size of a CAP O (O0) see :-)
