The smaller political parties were ever more marginalised by the #GE2017.

 

In 2015 the Tories gained power when just 23.5 % of the electorate voted for them.


With that disproportionate power grab which we call
"democracy" they had complete control of the lives and futures of us all. They made a pig's dinner of that.

 

Ironically, in this week's election they failed to gain power when they secured the increased share of the electoral vote, from 23.5 % to 29.3%.

 

However, Jeremy Corbyn is less than 2 percentage points behind the Tories in terms of actual votes cast and some would call that a miracle.

 

Nevertheless in terms of Parliamentary seats he is disadvantaged by a shortfall nearly 9 % less than the Tories

Who would call this democracy? I call it a travesty.

 

Don't blame me! I voted for Proportional Representation.

 

Ironically, had we adopted PR we would now have the certainty that Theresa May claims to crave... one way or another.

 

footnote

Some will have noted the MSM use the figure 43% to describe the Tory vote. That is because they are not measuring the Tory share of the electorate because that number does not flatter our electoral system.
