Scene- Two Flat mates (Jane and Sam) are sitting down to watch TV.
Sam - I Hope 'Hollyoaks' is on I love that programme.
Jane - Oh, I hope 'friends' is on, it's my favourite.
*Tv is turned on, flicking through the TV Guide, Hollyoaks is on but friends isn't...Eastenders is though.
Jane -Oh, Eastenders is on, now THAT is my favourite now
Sam - But you just said Friends was?
Jane- That was before I knew it wasn't on, now this one is my favourite.
action. There is a glitch with the BBC, a message scrolls across the screen asking viewers to stand by, while waiting they flick through the channels
Jane- Oh look, Location, location, location is on.. that's my favourite.....
Now very crudely we can test the principles of FPTP and AV here.
Does someone's second or third choice equal the same amount of support as others first?
Is it fair that they are still undecided what to watch and in a stalemate?
Under AV this is a draw. Plain and simple and if the third preference goes down, then her fourth or fifth or sixth 'favourite' will be considered the same as their first, despite obviously lower levels of support.
Should people be elected with support or technicalities?
