AFTER reading the article last week, saying the alternative vote (AV) was a “politicians’ fix” and that the suffragettes would not have wanted AV, I felt I had to write to protest against such a patronising view.
They wanted and won votes for all women not one vote per person.
They lived in a male-dominated world and first past the post was all there was.
Surely in 2011 we have the intelligence to sort out the lies and scaremongering and vote for a much fairer system?
I hope all strong minded women will chose AV on May 5 and make it a fairer choice for all.
