In what is now the post-era of the election several questions need to be raised, not least that of the electoral system as a whole. It seems bizarre to me that there is a tremendous bias in favour of the Tories. I know the 'winners' will be shaking their heads or gloating, and pointing towards the fact that they were the first past the winning post, and that nothing else matters blah, blah, blah. But the situation is that it does matter. It matters to the country as a whole. It matters to the disaffected who cast their vote believing in the Democratic system, only to find on inspection, that the set up is glaringly flawed and always has been. For example,
Conservative votes cast per MP - 34,348
Lib - Dems votes cast per MP - 301,986
Green Party votes cast per MP - 1,154,436
UKIP votes cast per MP - 3,881,139

Other than the party that benefits, who in their right mind would try to defend such an outlandish so-called democratic system?
Here is our thought for the day, and why it is now so important to lift up your heads and declare your support to get rid of this destructive, uncaring, bunch of fraudsters and chisellers. Here is an e-mail received by Sven Radio this morning BST
UKIP got 14% of the national vote and got 1 seat
The Tories got 37% of the national vote but got over 300 seats
Basically the level of national representation isn't equal at all.
So yeah we're not living in a representative democracy as such, we're living in a country where certain parts are considered more important than others, irrationally so as it happens.
They did try to reform the system years ago but Labour and Tory scaremongering made people vote against reform.
Oh well, we're all in now for five years of hell, so we'd better get ready for it
We're going to be raped in every orifice by the Tories, so we'd better lube up
