though the Brexit party can wreak havoc on Tory seats by splitting the Brexit vote. Though this is no more than the Tories deserve for their messing about with Brexit. You see the Tories warning that a vote for TBP is a vote for Caracas Corbyn, but really who cares what Corbyn does when the referendum can be ignored.The 1st past the post system in TUKOGBANI means that the party with the most votes in a constituency takes the seat.
That skews Opinion Polls much more than here where the distribution of seats is [while by no means perfect] much more representative of public opinion than the UK model.
When Mr & Mrs Smith get to the polling station they know that voting with your heart rather than your head can mean
- you might have well have not bothered voting at all....
Cant remember which one but I recall the Right Honourable Margaret Thatcher going into a General Election and making it clear to voters that there was either going to be a Conservative or a Labour Government...
- which one do you want?
I cant see either Brexit or the Lib/Dems getting anything like a number of seats that reflects their standing in the opinion polls....
