Michael Forsyth's degeneration game

I had the misfortune to hear "Lord" Forsyth on the subject of how AV is terrible for Scotland.  He did not have an answer to the question as to how a two-way system works in a four-or-more party system, other than "strong government" and "people understand it" - to the extent where several seats were won on less than 30% of the vote.

Hopefully this is narrow sectrarianism rather than mere dotard-like posturing, although I have my doubts.

The Tories are hated in Scotland, still, so hopefully the "Yes" campaign will run this as much as possible - so that a high turn-out in the Parliamentary elections does something worthwhile for the wider UK.
