    Well, technically 'more than half the seats = win', but that's essentially it, yes.

    Number of votes does not matter. It's about the number of seats. Just look at this year for example, UKIP got a lot of votes and still ended up with only 1 seat.

    Yes. But imagine (this is a massive exaggeration) you had 2 separate areas. One area with a population of 5 million - 4.9 million people voted for UKIP and they won a seat. Another area with a population of 20 thousand , 11 thousand people voted for Conservatives and they won a seat. Those seats are still worth the same amount.
