Mr Clegg’s attack on the No to AV campaign was wrong. “This nice little racket” as he calls it is not confined to right of centre support. Hasn’t he heard that Margaret Beckett and John Prescott, along with many other figures of the left, are also in favour of keeping our present system of elections? Most other democracies use our system or a proportional system and not AV. Who is doing the misleading he complains about?
