The Conservative candidates for both District and Town Council elections have been out in force this week, campaigning against the Alternative Vote option in Thursday’s referendum. In this photo they are joined by the Henley MP John Howell.
John Howell MP said: “Our democracy is built on a simple principle, one person, one vote and the right for that vote to be equal to all others. AV will put an end to this and that is why I am urging everybody in Henley to join me in voting No in the referendum on May 5th. AV is not going to fix our politics. In fact it will create a system which gives supporters of extreme parties such as the BNP multiple votes, while supporters of the mainstream parties will get only one way – how is that fair?”
