    Is the British Voting System Fair?

    In Britain, we follow the 'first past the post' system, which is, in my opinion completly silly, the reason? simple:

    If Labour get 35% of the vote, and the tories get 40%, guess who wins? Labour.

    They win by 60 more seats, even though 5% less people voted for them.

    This is silly dont ya think?

    Well - even if it is unfair in your opinion - labour is going to win by the looks of it () by about 10% margins according to Sky at the moment. So it doesn't make much difference to this election anyway...
