This is, as you might expect, quite exciting. Unfortunately the article gets one really crucial thing about me wrong, and my comment clarifying this on the site has yet to be approved, so I just want to make this clear:
I am not actually advocating random ballot
Observe the following quote from the original article:
I think it has desirable and undesirable features (in particular there’s one really major problem with it), but even with the above list I’m not sure I actually endorse it. Consider this a thought experiment more than a proposal.
“perfect” was in scare quotes for a reason. It has some very nice properties, but it also has a lot of problems (both theoretical and practical). I have no interest in promoting it as the system we should actually be using, it’s just an interesting system to think about it. The reality is that (while it’s not necessarily the system I would have most preferred) I am extremely strongly in favour of the move to AV and will be voting yes on May 5th.
Update: Jacob has now fixed this, mentioning I am “highlighting” it rather than “pushing” it.
