In the consultations on the electoral system(s) to be used for the 2017 election of the Chief Executive and the Legislative Council, it is hoped that consideration will be given to the MBC and QBS respectively, as per these two papers.

If a sports competition between Man. Utd. (independence), Man. City (devo. max) and Liverpool (status quo) were to be played as the Scottish referendum is to be conducted, and if the games were organised by a Manchunian, then Man. Utd. might play Liverpool in round one. If Man. Utd. won, they'd win the contest. If not, Liverpool would then have to play Man. City, and the winner of this second match would be the champion.
In other words, the whole thing has been fixed so that independence is given the best chance of success. In a word, it is a nonsense.

A similar exercise was conducted in Nanjing University on 18th Nov.
On 2nd Sept, 51 councillors of Dublin City Council used a Borda Count (BC) or Modified Borda Count (MBC) to name a new bridge over the Liffey, the Rosie Hackett bridge. As far as is known, this is the first time that DCC, or any elected chamber in Ireland, North or South, has used a Borda methodology in decision-making. An analysis is attached.
