I agree, and this raises an important issue. It is not our responsibility to
provide the VVAT solution. The Government's spin that 'there are no VVAT
machines in the market' does not negate the importance of VVAT. It is our
responsibility to point out the critical importance of VVAT - It is up the
guys in the Dept to find a suitable system. If none can be found, then no
eVoting - simple eh?

It is important that we demonstrate the general principle of VVAT and how it
should work.
