We had a General Election in the UK this week. We use a first-past-the-post system in our General Elections, which isn’t particularly representative.
I’m not going to say too much about this but I thought it was interesting to see how many votes each party received in relation to the number of parliamentary seats they got…
|Party||Seats||Votes||Votes per seat|
|Scottish National Party||56||1454436||25972|
|Democratic Unionist Party||7||184260||26323|
|Social Democratic & Labour Party||3||99809||33270|
|Ulster Unionist Party||2||114935||57468|
