So, the way it works behinds the scenes, one of the things with the Single Transferable Vote is that there is a number of ways of actually deciding what happens behind the scenes, so when it comes to the counting, the way you transfer the votes can be a little more complex. But, from a user point of view it's really simple.

I mean this was the argument that was made with AV in the Referendum a couple years ago, "Oh no, it's far too complicated, nobody will understand that," but you just number the candidates. And the Conservatives campaigning against it for instance, saying "Oh no, it's too complicated, nobody will understand", except, of course, it's the system they use internally to elect their own candidates.
