South Shields premier political blog

AV decisively rejected by South Tyneside

with one comment

Almost 3 – 1 against

Voting figures just announced at Temple Park Centre in South Shields (in rough round numbers)

Yes – 12500

No –  32000

Looks like this will be reflected nationally, who would want to be in Nick Clegg’s shoes today?  Lib-Dems have also lost over 650 councillors.

  1. What a complete waste of time for the yes to a.v campaign,whoever wanted change simply did not have the financial leverage to do anything about it.Every news channel was advertising a no vote,nearly all the newspapers supporting a no vote,all the direct mail leaflets said no ,i did not get any advert delivered to me promoting yes. Money speaks a thousand languages.
