Figures are not finalised yet, of course, but these numbers strike me as revealing:
UKIP – 3.5M votes : 1 seat
Lib Dems – 1.5M votes : 10 seats
SNP – 1.2M votes : 57 seats
I’m not a political animal and have little interest in the overall results. And I’m no fan of UKIP.
But I am interested in algorithms, and it does seem clear that ours is rather broken.
