The results of the 5th May referendum on the Alternative Voting (AV) system for the UK have been declared this morning.
In a very heavily-subscribed vote (almost some of the population turned out to vote), those voting in favour were 50%, those voting against 50% and those voting maybe 50%.
Peter Snow of the Hush Puppies Swingometer Party, who had been campaigning for the use of traditional pens for ticking voting papers was said to be more than pleased. He said that in all his years of being involved with elections, he was absolutely delighted that almost 150% of some of the population had turned out to vote.
However, there was some confusion at the polls. In Edgbaston, Birmingham, a voter closed over the curtain of their booth to cast their vote and was heard, four minutes later shouting, "there's no toilet roll in here!".
