YesToAV seem to have a very "if you support No, you're uneducated" tone. Very much a turn off for people.

Isn't one of the No campaign's key arguments that AV is "complicated"?  I guess they are relying on people being uneducated if that's the case.

Talk about an enthusiasm gap..

I'll have to stop banging on about Clegg's tactical nouse one of these days, but it's also not a good idea to hold a referendum to try and break the Labour/Tory duopoly at a time when you've seen to it that it's at its highest popularity since the early 80's.

OT: but why do people insist on changing their names so often? If it weren't for the locations and signatures I'd assume this forum had an ever-revolving door of members.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

...exactly, which makes the "Display Name" (the one in bold) just another way to make your account prettier - additional sig space, basically. And I'm using for all that it's worth.

Think what you want of him, but had he been the face of 'Yes to AV' (rather than merely an advocate) then it'd be doing a lot better than it is. Not just because he's the Leader of the Labour Party and that a very high percentage of Labour's voters are instinctive loyalists (though they are), but because the case he's personally put - both in terms of argument and of tone - has been just so much better than that used by the official campaign or by its advocates in government.

On what basis? Labour, under E-Mil, have been leading in near enough every poll this year; I doubt any Labour leader could've stopped Labour voters giving the Lib Dems a kicking via the AV referendum after what's been year of non-stop provocation.

Ed Milliband just seems like a weak, uninspiring leader to me. From what I can tell he seems unable to catch any real media spot light, has very weak preformances during PMQs (of course much better than Nick Clegg who is beyond terrible) and the speeches I've seen from him seem mildly exciting at best.

I believe Ed has as much to do with Labour's strong polling numbers at the moment as he does with NO's poor one's. I saw the Swedish-left lead by Sahlin ahead of Reinfeldt's goverment by more than 10% in his early years, but in the end they still lost by 5% due to the fact that their strong showing in polls was built on disapproval of the Reinfeldt goverment rather than actual support for their own policies, or their own leader.

Now I'm not saying Milliband is Sahlin, she was out-right loathed while Ed seems to simply be irrelevant.

Actually Tim Pawlenty could be a good comparison. Milliband reminds me of a left-wing Tim Pawlenty with a lisp.
