David Cameron’s Strategic Nous

In May of this year Britain had a referendum on their electoral system. David Cameron took a very strong role in the referendum as he knew that under AV (the equivalent of PV), the Conservative Party would face a political environment that was dominated by Labour & Liberal Democrat coalitions.

Cameron made a very, very public plea for voters to reject AV.

John Key is more popular than David Cameron ever has been, and his intervention in this referendum will ensure a second referendum and a voting system that will not work against National. Cameron?s strategic nous meant that AV was defeated and Britain has an electoral system that the Conservatives can win under.

John Key should give a press conference doing what David Cameron did. Give voters clear reasons to reject MMP and vote for SM.
