Blunkett: NO campaign made up cost figures

And now, at the last possible moment, David Blunkett admits that the NO campaign plucked figures out of the air when deciding how to torpedo fairer votes:

The former Labour Home Secretary described the figure of £250 million, used by the No campaign to define the extra cost of AV, as “made up”.

Mr Blunkett said: “We are in the middle of an election campaign. People in elections use made-up figures. I have never used the £250 million figure. It [AV] would undoubtedly cost more but I have used an extra £90 million.”
