We didn’t lose AV due to lack of money

The Electoral Commission has released  information on the spending of the Yes and No campaigns and they reveal No outspent Yes, £3.26m to £2.14m.

But it would be  a huge mistake  to think that  we can just blame the different amounts spent. No were much more effective in how they spent their money and had a much more effective strategy. No could have spent twice as much but delivering more badly designed and written leaflets or more appalling press adverts would not have helped.
