The current system of First Past The Post is backwards in a country that prides itself on democracy. It is not a fair representation of which parties the
people vote for.

Here is a breakdown of the number of votes in the 2015 UK election:

  • Conservative: 11.3 million
  • Labour: 9.3 million
  • UKIP: 3.9 million
  • Liberal Democrats: 2.4 million
  • SNP: 1.5 million
  • Green: 1.2 million

Under a Proportional Representation system the number of seats would have been:

  • conservative: 240
  • Labour: 213
  • UKIP: 83
  • LibDem: 53
  • SNP: 37
  • Green:24

Under the current system of FPTP the number of seats are:

  • Conservative: 331
  • Labour: 232
  • SNP: 56
  • LibDEM: 8
  • Green: 1
  • UKIP: 1

Please call upon David Cameron together to abolish this system and introduce a fairer system of PR in it's place.

Thank You.
