Meanwhile, in Lilliput

What about them Liberal Democrats, huh?

Harry Reid is Very Serious right now

    I hope this is a reference to an episode of Spongebob.

  2. Basically the system supports whoever is in power for a long period of time. In the 80s it was easier for the Conservatives to win, lately it has swung toward Labour. Whoever is in power just plays around with districts until the other party has more wasted votes. That’s why Labour could still “win” even if the Conservatives get like 5% more votes than them and why the Lib Dems stand no chancing of being the biggest party. Now you see why the Lib Dems support PR!

  3. If there’s a hung parliament, I kinda feel like the Lib Dems will support a Tory minority government. I guess there could be a coalition but I think just supporting them for six months or so until another election is more likely. Nick Clegg may not like David Cameron, but I just can’t see the Lib Dems committing political suicide by propping up Labour for another term.

    Also this is my new favorite toy: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/politics/election_2010/8609989.stm

      Your new favorite toy is pretty good at showing how terribly stacked against the Lib Dems Britain’s party system is. No matter how you slice it Lib Dems need huge numbers over Labour and Conservatives in order to win even a handful of seats.
