Independents – all very small.

Here’s why Britain will never have Proportional Representation. There are only three Europhile Parties – Labour, Lib Dem and SNP. The voting figures from the 2009 European elections show that their vote totals at 4.5 million. All the other parties are eurosceptic or withdrawalist. Their votes add up to 10 million.

Why would Labour and Lib Dem want a voting system that would consign them to a 2 to 1 disadvantage? They won’t.
