    Tories are doing better in the devolved authorities when they wouldn't normally -> this years Scottish elections
    More representation for the smaller parties who don't usually do as well
    Worsened Labour's hold over Scotland/Wales?

    ...quite hard

    so i'd note things like

    AMS is a hybrid system which produces a multi-party system due to the fact the regional voting part makes the system more roughly proportional to votes. Due to the differential topup, smaller parties which may be disadvantaged by FPTP part and the Winner's Bonus, are advantaged and vice versa. For example, in the 2016 local scottish elections, the Tories who are usually unpopular in Scotland won 31 seats all together, from a differential top up of 21 seats from their 7 constituency seats. Likewise, due to the fact SNP won 63 seats, missing out on a majority due to their successes in the constituency part, so only got a differential top up of 4 regional seats.

    If they are right I honestly might cry. Pressure groups and democracy would be such nice questions and honestly would not go near Political Parties
    If the question for political parties is good I'll do it it's pretty contemporary so could do better than you think

    Also, its important to note what kind of party system it produces, like FPTP produces a two-party system / two and a half party system (2010). If you were to talk about FPTP you can also note that the disproportionate system that it is meant that though SNP got 1.5 million votes, they got 56 seats, while UKIP and Greens combined got 5 million votes together and only 1 seat each.
