The campaign ahead of the UK referendum on the Alternative Vote is seeing some rather strange cross-party activity.
In one of the more curious pairings of the modern political era, David Cameron will today share a platform with the Labour former cabinet heavyweight John Reid as the battle over electoral reform escalates and cuts across party lines. [Independent, 18 April 2011]
