In the general election ending on May 7th:

  • 37% of the votes cast were for the Tories and they received 51% of the seats in the House of Commons.
  • 24% of the votes cast were for the Lib Dems, the Greens and UKIP, and they received 1.5% of the seats.
  • The SNP received 3% of the votes but 9% of the seats.

All totally logical. Not.

Rory Bremner, impersonating David Cameron was asked “Isn’t that unfair?” and Cameron (Bremner) replied:

Life is unfair and it is only fair that we reflect real life in the House of Commons
