David Cameron: AV system would be 'hopelessly unclear'

David Cameron has called the alternative voting system the political equivalent of a "life-support machine" for dead government.

In a speech in Kent, he said AV was unfair, undemocratic, complicated and "hopelessly unclear", adding that, "if we'd had AV at the last election, we might well still have Gordon Brown as the prime minister".
