(Published 2031) BIRMINGHAM URBEM - It is only one week before local elections in England, and the PR referendum. Both sides of the debate are gearing up for major campaigning for the battle.

None more so than the No camp. However, political experts have noticed that they are as idiotic as the No to AV camp back in 2011.

"We can see that they are scaremongering, just like the No to AV were," said Dr. Robert Smarts, political scientist, "with such slogans as 'Hitler Was Elected Under PR'. Now, I can tell you that GCSE History students know that Hitler only had 44% of the vote. He actually had to merge with the Nationalists and ban the Communists and the Social Democrats in order to get more than 50%. GCSE students know more."

Other slogans include 'PR is complicated - you have to think about the vote', and 'destroys link between MP and you'. Some billboards state that 'it costs the taxpayer £1.1bn to run a PR referendum'.

The newly-elected Social Democrats have offered this as part of their election manifesto, along with the decrease in student fees to £6000.

The PR Referendum will be the third in British history after the European Union referendum, and the AV one.

It is also the first to be decided in the new capital of Birmingham Urbem after London got burnt down by an asteroid in 2019.

As of press time, many exit polls suggest that No has 60% support, possibly as a result of several hundred idiots convincing other idiots.
