@suihkulokki so in my case I'm trying to work out how penalised smaller parties are because despite the ease of analysing the overall vote share as a proxy for a 2nd referendum you can be damn sure that if the #brexit parties get 1 more MEP than the remain parties it will be an "vindication" of their current brexit at all costs strategy. I suspect for this election no one much cares about the MEPs themselves (unfortunately).
Two little known facts about the FPTP system is how little it takes to elect an MP. For starters it only took 16.75% of the vote to elect the Conservatives. Fact two it took less than 50% to elect the whole of parliament all 650 MP's.
Forget the majorities they have as constituency MP's and remember you only have to beat your nearest opponent by one vote to get elected. The above figures are based on MP's winning by a majority by one vote.
A nice little Mastodon instance. Mild trolling encouraged (keep it local), but not required. Malicious behaviour is not tolerated. Follow Wheaton's law and you'll be fine.
