Electoral Lottery Law

So the results are in, but there is something dodgy about them. You don't have to be a mathematical genius to work out that it takes 35,000 Conservative voters to elect one Conservative MP, 33,350 to elect one Labour MP, but 120,000 voters to elect one Liberal Democrat MP. On the votes cast, there should be another 138 Liberal Democrats in Parliament. So where are they all?

The truth is that votes have been stolen by the corrupt electoral system.

In Scotland, 412,386 votes cast for the Conservatives (a sixth of the poll) realised 1 seat.

In the South East, the Conservatives polled almost exactly half the vote and snaffled 89% of the seats.

In the North east, Labour polled 43.6% of the vote and took 86% of the seats - almost double their true entitlement.

That a modern democracy should allow its Government to be chosen by what amounts to a lottery is a disgrace.
