With a Proportional Representation or PR voting system a party must have 50% of the votes – and they must work collaboratively. And crucially each vote has equal value.
With the UKS outdated First Past the Post or FPTP voting –
70% of votes are wasted
50% of votes go to loosing candidates.
Most voters haven’t voted for their MPs
Only a few thousand swing voters matter
Some seats haven’t changed for100 years.
Vote worth less in a safe seat.
Only marginal seats matter
And political diversity is suppressed with a minority rule.
Tories have 80 seat majority with 44% of the votes and 100% of the power
Lib Dems 17% of votes and 1 seat
Greens 18% of votes and 1 seat
Labour (50K votes for each seat)
Tories (38K votes for each seat)
How can anyone who supports democracy support FPTP?
