The people have spoken - now they'll have to live with it

So, the results are in, and the people have said No to AV.  As predicted, a number of people are viewing this as Yes to FPTP.

'David Cameron ... said the referendum had delivered a "resounding answer that settles the question" over electoral change and people now wanted the government to get on with governing in the national interest.

'The director of the No campaign, Matthew Elliott, said he had been "astonished" at the scale of the No victory: "I personally believe that this result will settle the debate over changing our electoral system for the next generation."'

Oh well - I guess I might get a chance to get proper PR one more time before I die...
