But that is the way it goes with democracy.
Some you win.
Some you lose.
I have got to admit though that the Yes campaign was dismal. Especially bad (embarrassingly awful in fact) was the condescending and trite publicity. The support from self serving politico's like Clegg really did not help either.
I hope that in this case the "Wisdom of Crowds" is correct and I was wrong in supporting AV.
Although I have an uneasy suspicion that this rejection of AV is simply going to secure the position of the ugly wide boys who currently rule or have ruled (and ruined) the country.
The Camerons, Reids and Blunkett's of this world, are laughing tonight.
Hi Ho Hum.
