BBC Breakfast debates changing the electoral system

In a couple of weeks we'll be asked to vote in the first UK-wide referendum for more than 30 years.

We're being asked if we want to change the way we elect MPs from the current system of First Past the Post to the Alternative Vote.

There is a fierce argument underway about which system is the best and fairest voting system. We've been debating the issues with Jonathan Bartley, the vice-chair of the Yes to Fairer Votes campaign and former Labour MP Jane Kennedy, from the No 2 AV campaign.
