This icon hits the buffers then, and needs to drop off the set of images in my blog's right hand column, since it's all over now and in the referendum on changing the voting system last week the Yes campaign died on its arse.
I think the voters went the wrong way on it, and that it was lost for a number of reasons most of which I'll not rehearse here. But the public have spoken, or at least that slice of the public that cared to express an opinion, and fear has triumphed over hope again. At a guess it'll be thirty years before we get another chance at reform of the Lower House.
So: maybe next time :o)
(Such politicking is why I've been quiet here for the last two months. Normal service shall soon be resumed)
