Ukip supporters are feeling the UK’s first past the post electoral system is unrepresentative after the party polled nearly four million votes with a huge swing in their favour but only gained one seat in parliament.
UKIp on 3.7 million got more votes than both the Lib Dems and SNP combined, who have 8 and 56 seats respectively.
Under a proportional representation system , those votes would have given UKIP 83 seats in the new parliament.
However there’s a downside in that such a system would also have given the Greens 24 seats and the Scottish National Party 37 seats. The system would also have changed results for the main parties with the Conservatives on 240 and Labour on 213. The Libdems would have 53.
This is a mix that would probably have made the UK ungovernable in the same way NZ is hard to govern at the moment.
While its good to see the UK public were not stupid enough to fall for Labour’s propaganda, its a shame that again like NZ, the only party they could vote for to realistically stop the extreme left was the far left Conservatives.
Under coward Cameron and his spineless flunkies the UK will continue to collapse into the socialist abyss. A country completely white anted by Cultural Marxism and Fabian socialism.
Meanwhile the almost 4 million who supported UKIP, like the 100,000 in NZ who voted Conservative, will have to grin and bear it while parties with far less votes strut their parliamentary power.
Cameron actually only has a relatively small majority, and his govt will most likely be blighted by backbench rebellions and leadership challenges, so it will be interesting to see how he goes. With some luck, the UK might only have to tolerate this sniveling Marxist appeaser for a short time.
More to the point though is the anger of 4 million voters who have been virtually shut out of the parliamentary process. Where do the libs and progressives who are the main beneficiaries of FFP at the moment think this will lead?
