    I don't get why people use this argument. In AV you'd still end up with Conservatives in power because UKIP supporters are probably going to put conservatives second, and in proportional voting you'd likely end up with a Conservative/UKIP coalition with near enough to 50% of MPs that you'd have a hung parliament with no possible coalition which could hold a majority.

    The last gov. that won 35% of the vote was labour, in 2005. The Conservatives won 37% of the vote and 24 less seats than that Labour government. Now go cry elsewhere.
