No, you are wrong on this Peter. I think the British, if voting that down, are making the correct and right decision.
The Australian system is a farce. Only some of us who are used to this believe it is superior. In a sense, we are ‘extreme’ on this.
Maybe a compromise is better, that is, preference is allowed but only optional and then only in specified scenarios preferences count.
The current down to the wire context of among only two based on preference imposes and assumes too much on voters.
