"STV can hardly be called complicated: vote 1-2-3... in order of preference."

It helps if people can also understand how the winners are determined, which is horribly complicated with STV.  Not only do you have weak candidates being eliminated and their votes transferred (as in AV), but you also have successful candidates having their "surplus" votes transferred, with several methods of deciding which are the surplus votes. Not simple at all.
