Council result makes easier reading than Holyrood

STV-PR again I'm afraid ... interesting article in the local paper today.

Makes the very clear point, which I was banging on about earlier, that the vast, vast majority of problems with spoiled papers on 3rd/4th May was with the AMS election to the Scottish Parliament ... the level of spoiled papers for the Local Government elections was actually lower than in Northern Ireland back in March, when they also elected their Assembly with STV-PR.

Northern Ireland have been using STV-PR for decades ... Scotland obviously had no problem in adopting it and clearly it would result in far fewer problems for the Scottish Parliament elections if adopted for 2011 ;-)
