miss_s_b: (Politics: Democracy)
You all know my views on AV. It's a total dog's breakfast. If we had the chance to go for STV then I'd be campaigning for that like a rabid dog that hasn't had breakfast in days. HOWEVER, STV is not on the table, or even in a bowl on the floor, and a dog's breakfast is better than starving to death, which is what democracy does under first past the post. Emerging breathless from my distended metaphor, I announce that I am going to help out the Yes campaign.

And you can too, if you want.

All you need to do is phone a couple of people. It's easy. You don't even have to get out of bed. Sign up for the volunteering process here, and someone will get in touch with you soon.

If you have any doubts about which is the right side to be on in this, just look at the line up of self-interested politicos on the No Campaign team. Would you trust any of them to be doing this in the interests of the voter? Nah. They want to stitch it up for themselves. Don't let 'em.

Every frigging year, without fail, some bunch of idiots start up a campaign for us to move permanently to central european time because they want to "increase the hours of daylight". I've got news for you, bozos. The hours of daylight are constant whatever you set your clock at. If you want longer lighter evenings, why don't you get up earlier?

Seriously. I don't get why we have to bugger about wih our clocks twice a year either. Greenwich Mean Time is the standard by which everyone in the world sets their clocks. Why can't we just stick to it, and if YOU want an extra hour of daylight, start work at eight instead of nine. Why do the rest of us have to have our sleep patterns disturbed for the convenience of a bunch of over priveledged office workers?

And don't give me that shit about farmers and cows. Cows can't tell the time.
