I suggest a campaign about ...

Ensuring that Political Campaigns are accountable and are legally bound to be truthful.

When looking for someone to complain to about the questionable claims and strategies of the "No2AV" campaign I was surprised to find that there is no independent body which governs political campaigns/adverts whatsoever.

The Advertising Standards Agency has been unable to investigate political adverts since 1998, whilst the Electoral Commission does not rule upon wording or content of campaign material.

Whilst I understand the need for free speech, politicians and their parties and campaigns should still be required to remain truthful when making their case to the public... and there is currently a HUGE loophole which does not require them to be truthful at all.
