North Cornwall Conservatives and NO to AV

North Cornwall Conservatives at a recent meeting showed their support for the No Campaign.   It has become clear that AV is the wrong voting system for Britain.  AV is an unfair, expensive and discredited voting system, that allows the candidate who comes third to win elections.
