* REFERENDUM ON CHANGE IN SYSTEM TO ELECT MPs
from BBC News: AV referendum: Best arguments for voting Yes or No
Britain decides on Thursday whether to change the way it elects MPs to the Westminster Parliament. So what are the best arguments for keeping the current “first past the post system”?
And the strongest reasons for changing to the alternative vote (AV), in which people can rank candidates in order of preference?  BBC News asked the two rival campaigns to come up with the top five reasons why you should back their cause in the referendum.  See here for their response: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-13229787
