DOZENS of campaigners pushing for electoral reform staged a ‘flash-mob’ stunt in Sheffield station.
Train passengers passing through the station were met with the sight of statue-like figures standing still, holding purple ‘Yes’ signs aloft.
Yes to Fairer Votes organiser Emily Wilkie, who wants people to vote for a change to the Alternative Vote system at the referendum on May 5, said: “This is a way of emphasising the importance of a ‘yes’ vote for the future of our democracy.”
The stunt was held as the national debate over AV heated up. and Prime Minister David Cameron launched his first attack on coalition ally Nick Clegg, ridiculing the Sheffield Hallam MP’s support for reform as a “miserable little compromise”
