    Is it because the number of toppled statues currently totals 1?

    and the number of rapes is too large to deal with?

    The Policing Bill has passed and soon the voter suppression bill.

    So not only will voting become more difficult so will protesting.

    A Government of the people but only voted in by 29.4% of the electorate.

    For a country of 66.8m people with 47.6m voters - 14m people voted Tory - so we are ruled by the minority.

    I'm sure no Tory MPs have been accused of toppling statues.

    Which party got more than 14m votes then? Writing stuff up like that. It's as if you're about ten years old. 14m is about 30% of the total of those entitled to vote. Of all who voted, it's a massive majority.
    Are you Dianne Abacus by any chance? Maybe you're Jess Phillips, "Fragrantly" twisting the figures? LOL. You need to stop posting stuff like this. You'll never be taken seriously when you slag off others, whilst posting this stuff.
    You and those like you are why people like Boris gets into power. You're not helping your cause...just eating yourselves, as the left always do.

    You have just accepted and proven why the two party system is broken with a FPTP system. When 43.6% of the vote gets you 59% of the seats.

    Of all who voted it's not a massive majority - lol. Truly mad.

    Do learn something once in a while.

    The losers are lucky really. The majority who won, only got 59% of the seats. That leaves 41% to be shared out amongst the losers. Pretty generous I'd say. Careful what you wish for whilst eating yourself.

    whats AV

    imo your opinion of the current voting system is dependant upon who wins the said election :idea:

    In some countries afaik it is compulsory to vote perhaps they should consider that in the UK :idea:

    Alternative Vote system.


    If they make voting compulsory then they must also abolish the whip system and prohibit MPs from abstaining.

    Also, at elections they must ensure that at least one of the candidates is competent.
