Treating voters as idiots

It's obvious, isn't it? If Colin Firth, fresh from his success at the BAFTAs, says that the Alternative Vote is the way to go, then I'm bound to follow suit. I mean, he knows all about politics and psephology. (Admittedly, he once favoured Nick Clegg; but I'm sure that was just an unfortunate blip.)

And now he has been joined by his co-star, Helena Bonham Carter. If AV is good enough for a double-barrelled luvvie, it must be good enough for simple old me.
