With less than two days campaigning left, the AV referendum campaigns are really scraping the barrel for metaphors. The “No to AV ice cream van”, stationed outside an event with William Hague and Theresa May, tells us that with First Past The Post it is:
“One person one scoop”
But with the Alternative Vote:
“Who knows how many scoops you’ll get?”
On the plus side, the ice cream was free.
UPDATE: The No campaign has been in touch (twice) asking us to issue a clarification with regard to the illegal act of “treating”, serving food, drink or other refreshments as a method of influencing people for political gain. To get an ice cream, punters had to sign a disclaimer “saying that the campaign isn’t coercing or bribing them to vote one way or another.”
