UK: Trouncing for proposed change to voting system

VOTERS have overwhelmingly rejected Lib Dem proposals to change the way the country elects MPs.

With 393 of the 440 results in the Alternative Vote referendum in, the No camp had established an unassailable lead of 68.53% to 31.47%.

Nick Clegg said the result in the AV referendum was “a bitter blow” but insisted the coalition would continue and the Liberal Democrats would “move on” from their setback.
