Keith Rankin: Messing With The UK Election Figures

- Last week I suggested that the result of the British election would be closer than most people expected. I was right, the gap between Labour and the Conservatives was only nine percentage points. What I did not realise, however, is just how much the first-past-the-post system distorts British elections. So I did some sums, tried out the BBC's "Virtual Vote" tool, and made some comparisons with New Zealand. See... Keith Rankin: A Minuscule Landslide [1]
