The battle over Britain's voting system really is turning nasty.
I love the "Yes" campaign's response to reports that they removed black Birmingham poet Benjamin Zephaniah's image from leaflets distributed outside London.
PA reports that a Yes campaign spokesman said: "These allegations mark a new low for the 'No' campaign and their increasingly desperate smears.
"Let's put it this way. Operation Black Vote, the Muslim Council of Britain and a host of similar groups are backing the 'Yes' campaign. The BNP are backing the 'No' campaign. People can draw their own conclusions."
So the "No" campaigners are engaging in desperate smears, and by the way they're also a bunch of evil racists. Let's be grateful the "Yes" campaign haven't sunk to their level . . .
