Vote for Change need better lies - how to support MMP strategically
A whole bunch of stupid propaganda emails sent out by anti-MMP show how desperate those trying to kill MMP have become, read this...
Hi all at Tumeke whose site is totally awesome,
Im worried about the MMP referendum. I have read one article on the vote STV in part B strategy but cant remember where or find it with google.
The best strategy in the MMP referendum (for MMP supporters) is to vote to retain MMP in part A and then to choose STV in part B. STV is the next most representative system after MMP and hated almost as much by FPP supporters. Contrary to what Gordon at scoop says, there is a strong push on the right for FPP and it is not a foregone conclusion that it would lose to MMP in 2014. If all MMP supporters choose and stick to STV in Part B and dont get lulled into inertia by the lack of compulsion to even do Part B then STV would win part B and SM and FPP would disappear FOREVER along with all the power and money that always backs them. I cant say this loudly enough!! VOTE STV IN PART B !!
Are you guys allowed to take sides in this? Give this strategy some air? We already make tactical decisions with more than one vote in MMP. Its quite simple really
Part A: Retain MMP
Part B: Choose STV
This even works if MMP is not the winner in part A so long as STV wins part B because there will not be any big power plays or money backing STV.
What do you think?
The MMP campaign website people said that they had considered comming out with a preferred choice for Part B but decided not to because then they would be forced to split their meagre resources. But I see this as the easier promote and it has extra insurance.

YAWN. If you really love MMP, vote FPP as the second option so the choice between representation and non-representation is crystal clear.
IF you want to keep MMP, vote for it in A and vote FPP in B so that the elites who promote First past the Post are forced to reveal the naked venal greed of their desire to implement a political system that benefits the rich and powerful over actual representation.
