An interesting snippet from today's Cornwall Council full council meeting on the false arguments being put forward by the No2AV campaign.
My colleague Jeremy Rowe asked the Council to confirm the Electoral Commission's statement that the adoption of AV would not mean the need to use electronic voting machines. This was in response to the statements put out by the No campaign that costs of a Yes vote would be £250 million and include more than £120 million for e-voting machines.
Cllr Currie, the Conservative Cabinet Member for finance, ran through the history of voting pilots in the UK and confirmed that, when they ended in 2007, the decision was taken not to use e-voting again unless some very strict criteria were met and that the Commission had confirmed that this would not happen as a result of a Yes vote in the referendum.
This slaps down the scare-mongering tactics of the likes of Camborne and Redruth MP George Eustice who is a leading light of the No campaign and has frequently used the £250m figure.
Some of those who won't be too pleased to hear Cllr Currie's answer will be the three Tory councillors sporting No2AV badges in the chamber today - including Tory Leader Cllr Robertson.
