Alternative Vote the ONLY answer

Why are the Tories so hostile to such a sensible change to the voting system as the Alternative Vote and why has the Sunday Times come out in support of the status quo?

Consider what happened to me at the General Elections of 1997, 2001 and 2005. I won with less than 40% of the total votes cast. How can this be democratic?

The Alternative Vote gives voters more choice to elect an MP closest to their own beliefs. Voters will list the candidates in order of preference and the overall votes will be redistributed until one person receives 50% of the votes cast.

Every major political party uses a version of this for their own internal elections so how can it be wrong to transfer this to the main stage?
