Boris wins despite Alternative Vote system

Brian Paddick admitted in an interview on the Today programme that he didn't cast his second vote for Ken and from I can gather not many did either. This is interesting because the left always assumed that the AV system would always work for them because they reckoned that the anti Tory vote would always arrange for them to win on 2nd preference.

If anybody spots a decent site on how the 2nd preferences were distributed I'd be very interested.
