Victor Chandler has it as 100-1 on!).
But then again, no one ever cared about this stupid charade. The Westminster bubble has tried its hardest to create some noise with a faux acrimonious campaign spat (and now Hunhne is using it as another self-serving campaign...)- but in the Country no one cared....and it is easy to see why not:
- The economy is still sluggish
- Unemployment is high
- Wages are going down fastest since 1921
- inflation is at 4% and staying stubbornly high
- savers are being ruined by ultra-low interest rates
- We are at war in Afghanistan and now Libya - neither of which we have a way out of
- Petrol prices are at all-time record high's
That is the real stuff that matters, let alone events like the Royal Wedding and Bin Laden being killed.
And of course it is worse, no one ever cared about the AV vote except self-serving Lib Dems, Tories and a few Labour politicians. The political parties collectively like to maneuver to jerry-rig the system in their favour when in power. Only so that they can seek more power for longer - all the parties are guilty in equal measure, Labour were masters of this in their pathetic time in Government. As the Lib Dems have not been in power and now won't be again, they are desperate at the moment.
It is a sad reflection on our political culture thought that despite the many real problems of the Country the Government has decided to have this pointless referendum. I note that Wales and Scotland too are now engaged in interminable debates about devolution - so important to their politicians incomes - whilst their economies continue to slide year after year.
