Hackney result shows what we are up against!

UK democracy at work via the FPTP system:

So the Tories and Lib Dems get 7 seats between them and the Green Party gets NONE despite gaining more votes than both of them put together!!

And just in case you haven’t noticed, Greens poll more than 100 times the votes that UKIP get.

And just for good measure, Labour get less than three times the green vote and get clean up 88% of the seats (with 58% of the votes.

Truly proportionate representation would have yielded;

  • LABOUR 33 seats (and still overall control)
  • GREENS 12 seats
  • TORIES 7 seats
  • LIB DEMS 5 seats
