Yay, a lib dem victory!!!
Shame that didn't get that sort of majority in the real election...

But i'm surprised that labour beat the tories to be honest.

Just proves what would probably happen if the electorate was approximately 16-25 year olds!

Is it possible to work out how many seats the parties would have in a 659 seated House of Commons under our current electoral system?

for that you'd need to either know where people lived or divide them up into 659 groups some other way which would be pretty hard seeing as there were only about 600 votes!

I was thinking that. The only way to do it so treat the whole country as one constituency and use PR in the sense that % vote does equal % of seats.

If you allocate one TSR Parliament seat per vote to get a 600 (ish) seat house, you

1) Get an interesting initial parliamentary position.
2) Realise how important a single vote can be...

That's just proportional represtentation! I assumed he was looking for something more complicated as it would be pretty easy to work out percentages and multiply by 646

Not all of us. But then if we were all manual workers and this took part in the 60s I can assure you Labour would win, and if we were pensioners the Conservatives would win. Fact of life.

Or perhaps more young people are showing support for the Lib Dems and so in time, say 30 years time, they will have larger support proportionally from adults of the future too? Nobody knows for sure. As you get older you do tend to become conservative but trends break.

Yeh i agree, students who cant see beyond a single policy which would have ruined other areas of the economy. Although im a tad surprised that we finished second as would have thought they Tories would have done better as they have been slightly more vocal, but obviously the rest of TSR came out.

I guess it just goes to show that it is not party membership numbers which are the most important, but persuading the general population o support you and then getting them out to vote.

It is a suprise we were second...but a nice suprise at tht. I ain't been on all day until now and I was expecting a 4th place....or at best a distant 3rd....never did I imagine a second place with the distance from 1st place the same as that from 3rd
